“Welcome to the Chinese New Year’s celebration of the Year of the Horse,” began Mingli Wang who organized a delightful program for the Residents and Little Sisters. “People born on the Year of the Horse are recognized as energetic, bright and intelligent. They have excellent communication skills and enjoy being in the limelight. Unfortunately, they can be impatient and hot-blooded making failure very difficult.”
Speaking of enjoying the limelight, this year a group of energetic and talented students from USC was here again to celebrate Chinese New Year. The group, known as Remedy through Music (RTHM) is philanthropic group of student musicians committed to providing music therapy to care centers around LA. We were fortunate to have them entertain for Chinese New Year.
The program began with a cheerful violin concerto that takes its theme from the dumplings of Northern China. The program also included piano and flute, piano and violin, and guitar and violin duets and a number of vocal performances. The music told stories of beauty, love, friendship, struggle, heartbreak and more.
We are so grateful to the students for coming and to Mingli for organizing the performance. It was a wonderful afternoon for everyone.
