2022 Lunar New Year Music Celebration presented by MSU Artist
Celebrate the Lunar New Year with MSU artists! This tradition, dating back thousands of years, is a time to bring people together for family reunions, food, and of course, plenty of music.
This year, the Lunar New Year falls on February 1, and an esteemed group of MSU musicians and faculty members decided to use this opportunity to honor composers of Asian descent by featuring their music in a special concert.
Violinists Yvonne Lam and I-Fu Wang, clarinetist Mingzhe Wang, percussionist Gwen Dease, harpist Chen-Yu Huang, and pianists Zhihua Tang and Young Hyun Cho will perform works by composers Keiko Abe, Paul Chihara, and Chia-Yu Hsu. They have also chosen to perform works by MSU associate professor of composition Zhou Tian and College of Music alumnus Han-Ki Kim, bringing even more Spartan spirit into this MSU celebration of the Lunar New Year.
