February 2, 2019 NJ Symphony Orchestra CNY Celebration Concert and Festival at NJPAC Newark, NJ
Start a new tradition at the NJSO’s first-ever Chinese New Year celebration, conducted by Xian Zhang. Musical riches abound in this program that blends Eastern and Western musical traditions. Li Huanzhi’s Spring Festival Overture is beloved in China yet almost reminiscent of Copland’s America. Songs and arias from opera and traditional Chinese culture show that music bridges all cultures. Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with pianist Min Kwon brings all elements of this sumptuously crafted program together in a joyful performance. Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Lobby Festival begins at 6 pm. Delight in a happy celebration of the Year of the Pig with special pre-concert festivities for the whole family, including traditional Chinese music performers, calligraphy demonstrations, crafts and more.
