The CBAA 2023 Lunar New Year Gala is the Chinese Business Association of Atlanta's 28th annual event since its inception. It is one of the largest multicultural events in Metro Atlanta.
The Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra will perform “The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto,” an adaptation of an ancient legend, the Butterfly Lovers. Composed for a Western-style orchestra, it features a solo violin played using some Chinese techniques. Each section of the concerto tells a different part of the story, with melodies from traditional Chinese folk songs and Chinese opera. The solo violin and cello voices represent the lovers, Zhu Yingtai and Liang Shanbo.
After the concerto, guests will enjoy Chinese folk dances, Chinese solo and vocal quartet songs, and some Chinese instrumental performance, all celebrating the traditional Lunar New Year.
