The AUM Confucius Institute Turns One
On November 8, 2013, the AUM Confucius Institute celebrated its one-year anniversary. The celebration lasted the whole day. In the morning, the ground-breaking ceremony of the Confucius Garden was held. Among the guests at the ground-breaking ceremony was Todd Strange, the mayor of Montgomery, who highly praised AUM for its active role in the internationalization of the city of Montgomery. In the afternoon, over a hundred public school children enjoyed workshops on Chinese traditional music instruments. The highlight of this celebration was the evening performance of Peking opera and Chinese acrobatics by the artists from the Binghamton University Confucius Institute.
