Coming UP: Chinese New Year Festival and Concert - SF Symphony

The San Francisco Symphony's Chinese New Year Festival and Concert is coming up with a lot of great activities. (For more Chinese New Year activities in the Bay Area, click here)

From the symphony: The concert always gets off to an exciting start with the traditional lion dance, with drummers and dancers performing up and down the aisles and on the stage. This year’s concert is also particularly special this year because all of the works are by Chinese and Chinese-American composers. Conductor Carolyn Kuan returns to lead the concert for a sixth year in a row, and she has always been fantastic at keeping an audience full of children engaged and entertained.
