On the 17. January, 2020, the Chinese community in Austria held a brilliant performance evening at VHS, Längenfeldgasse, 13-15 in Vienna to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year.
This has been a yearly tradition for successively 12 years. Organised by the Chinese Women’s Association with its grand dame Ms XIE Feiru, the Huaxing Art Group and the Chinese Overseas’ Student Union, the New Year’s performance evening in Vienna has been offering the audience a variety of programs, including dancing, singing, instrumental works, talk shows, raps and kabarett, etc., highlighting both traditional and modern pieces in China, as well as feathering both oriental and western art forms. The Tombola in between is also as always a most-welcome moment in the evening.
This year’s performance, to name a few, include the traditional Chinese folk dance based on the melodies of Peking Opera and the southern Jiangsu Province, Chinese song and music describing the homesickness and the love of homeland, gasbrass quintett, saxophone quartett, jazz song, modern dancing, Viennese operette piece and a big choir in the end.
Following is a group of snapshots showcasing the fascinating evening. Enjoy!
