Chinese New Year Gala


Chinese New Year is slowly approaching! On the most special occasion of the year, CSSA-CAM sincerely invites you to join our Chinese New Year Gala 2013. This year, with the theme “China Image”, we are hoping to bring the warmth and joy of Chinese style New Year celebrations to Cambridge. 18 performances of the CNY Gala will deliver different aspects of life and culture in China, by covering traditional and also modern acts.

Time: 7.30pm, 10thFebruary 2013. (Door Opens at 6.45pm)
Venue: Corn Exchange, Cambridge

Performances:

Divided into four parts, Entertainment, Art, Tradition and Nightlife, CNY gala will never be purely performances, but a three-hour real experience of Chinese culture. In Entertainment part, you will be amazed by the finest “Voice of Cambridge” and the hilarious “Taken Out” play, both of which are derived from the most popular reality shows in China. The Cambridge Lion Dance troupe, together with different traditional Chinese dances from various ethnic groups will also provide you with a feast of exotic Chinese culture.

CNY Gala is also much honored to have attracted many big names to join the performances. We’ve invited Miao Lu, one of the top Chinese professional soprano, and Lexuan Chen, a celebrity-level pop singer who was made famous by the well-known Taiwanese singing competition “One Million Star”. If you are a Michael Jackson lover, dances by the Mirror Dance Group are the one to look forward to. Chris McGeever who has dashed so many people with his mysterious magic in so many Mayballs is bound to blow your mind. Of course we will not forget about the most popular rock band that has almost become the symbol for rock spirits in Cambridge— CB3.
