The Chinese New Year begins Monday, Feb. 8, and to help celebrate the occasion, Symphony Center will present its second annual Chinese New Year Concert on Feb. 21. During the CSO’s Asia Tour 2016, Li-Kuo Chang, assistant principal viola, taped this video to preview the event, which will feature the internationally acclaimed China Broadcasting Chinese Orchestra in its Chicago debut. Joined by Pang Kapang, the orchestra’s music director and principal conductor, and banhu soloist Jiang Kemei, Chang explains (in Mandarin) what concertgoers can expect to hear Feb. 21. Happy Year of the Monkey!
