Cel­e­brat­ing the Chi­nese New Year

Writ­ten by Sijia Feng Pub­lished on . Posted in News & Press

On Feb­ru­ary 8, CIP hosted series of events to cel­e­brate the Chi­nese New, attract­ing a large crowd of par­tic­i­pants from the cam­pus, com­mu­nity and other nearby col­leges. With our first time ever lion dance and tra­di­tional Chi­nese dance, and foods, cal­lig­ra­phy, the fes­tiv­i­ties become an annual expec­ta­tion from the Uni­ver­sity and the com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate the Chi­nese New Year and truly embrace the cul­tural diver­sity here in Greater Lafayette.

On Feb­ru­ary 12, CIP co-​sponsored “The Knights with Wu Man” con­cert, a cham­ber orches­tra with Chi­nese music instru­ment pipa with more than 2000 years of his­tory. Wu Man and the orches­tra pre­sented a splen­did blend of West­ern and East­ern music to a packed hall of excited audi­ence from Pur­due and the com­mu­nity. The artists also con­ducted res­i­dency work­shops for Sun­ny­side Mid­dle School (about 400 stu­dents in musi­cal pro­grams), and the Chi­nese lan­guage classes at Purdue.
