Time:7:00 PM - 9:00 PM CST
As part of its annual celebration of Chinese New Year, the St. Louis Chinese community welcomes a performance by professional singers, dancers, and acrobats from Guangdong, China. Located in southern China, the province of Guangdong was instrumental in China's economic reform of the 1980s. Guangdong is also steeped in history and culture. The theme of the performance is "harmony and prosperity," as the hosting organizations wish to emphasize the unique role of arts in promoting cultural understanding and creating more opportunities for dialogue about economic exchange and prosperity. Among the lineup of performers are the region's best acrobats, an esteemed pipa (a traditional Chinese music instrument) performer, and award-winning dancers who offer the best in both the traditional and the modern genres.
