The third annual Chinese New Year concert, The Sound of Spring, presented by the US-China Music Institute of the Bard College Conservatory of Music, is a celebration of one of the most important holidays in the Lunar calendar — a time for enjoying friends and family and looking ahead to the bright future of a new year. This is a truly authentic Chinese New Year concert with a program of Chinese music performed by The Orchestra Now, joined by a select group of top vocal and instrumental artists, and showcasing the wonderful diversity and artistry of Chinese symphonic music.

Highlights include the spectacular Yellow River piano concerto, performed by Julliard’s rising star Ju Xiaofu; the gorgeous Apsaras of the Silk Road for pipa and orchestra, featuring NY-based pipa soloist Zhou Yi; and the delightful operatic medley From Jasmine to Turandot, which combines Puccini’s famous Chinese-influenced opera score with the main source of his inspiration, the popular folk song Jasmine Flower.

Join Maestro Jindong Cai for a Pre-Concert Talk at 7 pm.
