Celebrate Chinese New Year
The Auburn University at Montgomery Confucius Institute (AUM CI) and the Central Alabama Association of Chinese (CAAC) will present their colorful, musical, and much anticipated Chinese Lunar New Year celebration on Sunday, March 1st. The celebration performance will take place at 2:30 p.m. in Alcazar Shriners, 555 Eastern Boulevard, Montgomery, AL 36117, followed by a joyful and delicious Chinese dinner featuring traditional Chinese New Year delicacies and entertainment. Among the highlights is a performance on the guzheng (the traditional Chinese zither) by Daisy Wu, an award-winning professional Chinese musician who is currently a visiting professor at Alfred University. The Chinese Spring Festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month in the Chinese lunar calendar and ends with the Lantern Festival on the 15th day. The last day before the New Year begins, Chinese New Year's Eve, is a day where families gather for their annual reunion dinner. This year, the Spring Festival falls on February 19 and launches the year of the Sheep.
