To celebrate the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Confucius Institute at UTSA and San Antonio Chinese Alliance are hosting a Mongolian Horsehead Fiddle Rock Concert at Palo Alto College Performing Arts Center showcasing Super Orient Courser, an award-winning modern folk music ensemble from China.

Super Orient Courser is a modern Mongolian horse­head fiddle (Morin Khuur in Mongolian) musician ensemble.

When President Barack Obama made his first state visit to China in November 2009, Super Orient Courser was handpicked to perform for the President at the welcome banquet hosted by the Chinese President Hu Jintao.
