We would like to thank once again, Charlie Zhang and his wife Ling, our big philanthropist of Southern California for their selfless dedication. On February 10, 218, Charlie and Ling held the “Love Feast” for the 3rd Chinese New Year Celebration with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra! All guests wandered together in the intoxicating music to share the joy of the Chinese New Year festival!

Pacific Symphony’s “Chinese New Year: A Love Feast,” an evening of rich, colorful and festive music and dance, welcomes the Lunar New Year with a special, inspiring concert performance. Ushering in the “Year of the Dog”, Music Director Carl St. Clair leads the orchestra as it is joined by a range of talented dancers and singers for a program that is both a visual and aural spectacle. Intertwining Eastern and Western cultures for a celebration unlike any other in Orange County, this virtual “love feast” offers a program of considerable breadth, covering a wide spectrum of entertainment, all in celebration of the Chinese New Year, which this year falls on Feb. 16.

The Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, as it’s been called since the 20th century, remains the most important social holiday in China. Originally tied to the lunar-solar Chinese calendar, the holiday was a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting. With the popular adoption in China of the Western calendar in 1912, the Chinese joined in celebrating January 1 as a New Year’s Day., China, however continues to celebrate the traditional Chinese New Year, although in a shorter version with a new name – the Spring Festival. Many around the world celebrate both holidays.
