Ba Ban Chinese Music Society brings a joyful celebration to the Year of the Tiger with festive music, dance, martial arts and acrobatics. Developed from a storyline of the origin of Spring Festival, this performance introduces the audience to the traditions and history of holiday decorations, blessings, flowers of Spring, preparing the reunion dinner and other Lunar New Year's traditions.

Founded in 1999, the Ba Ban Chinese Music Society of New York is dedicated to the preservation, creation and presentation of Chinese traditional and contemporary performing arts. Named after an ancient piece of folk music, "Ba Ban" literally means "Eight Beats" which is the structural basis for the grouping of notes in traditional Chinese music. The ensemble performs on "silk and bamboo" (sizhu) instruments: a classical instrumental grouping dating from the Qing dynasty (1636-1912) that includes various dizi (bamboo flutes), sheng (mouth organ), pipa (lute), qin (seven-stringed zither), ruan (alto lute), huqin (fiddles) and yangqin (dulcimer). In 2015, the group was recognized by the New York City Council for exemplary cultural service to the community.

This is event is made possible by a grant from New York State Council on the Arts.
