Imagine an evening as colorful as the nighttime sky dotted with fireworks.

These things and more are part of the excitement and anticipation of the Chinese New Year Concert and Imperial Dinner. This special event invites you to experience the rich customs and traditions celebrated by the Chinese culture for thousands of years. We hope you will join us on Saturday, February 21, 2015 for this unforgettable event.
The Orchestra is thrilled to welcome back Mei-Ann Chen to the podium to conduct a wonderful musical celebration of traditional Chinese melodies and other favorites.
