The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the China National Symphony Orchestra performing “Chinese New Year Celebration” on Friday, February 16, 2018.

Celebrate the Chinese New Year at the Moss Arts Center with a vibrant performance by the China National Symphony Orchestra that blends sounds from East and West and includes imagery from multiple sources, such as the China National Shadow Puppet Theatre.

Founded in 1956, this special evening with the orchestra features renowned composer, conductor, and Honorary Artistic Director and conductor Tan Dun on the podium.
