Seattle Rings in the Year of the Ram on the UW Campus
Sponsored by the Confucius Institute of the State of Washington (CIWA), the Chinese New Year Gala hosted by the Chinese Students and Scholars Association at the University of Washington (UWCSSA) attracted a full house on the night of February 8, 2015. UW students and teachers from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, as well as local Chinese-heritage residents and other admirers of Chinese culture, all gathered together to celebrate the Year of the Ram.
As the major sponsor of this New Year Gala, CIWA has been collaborating with UWCSSA and other local partners over years to organize Chinese New Year celebrations and promote traditional Chinese culture throughout Washington. This year’s gala featured many stirring performances, including lively music and dance by the Huayin Troupe, a spectacular Mongolian dance by UW student Qiaochu Sun, and a wonderful Peking opera performed by our local opera troupe. These performances brought a festive energy to the Chinese New Year and showcased the glamour, richness, and diversity of Chinese culture.
