The Monkey is ninth of the 12 animals in the recurring 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle. Every 12 years there is a Monkey year.
This year you can enjoy beautiful music, Chinese traditional puppetry shows, martial arts, Chinese folk music and Chinese Ethnic dances, a feast of fun for Australia audiences. The concert Chinese Music Orchestra – Treasures of the Nation merges old with new and will showcase China’s diverse musical heritage. It will also introduce audiences to a new world of music, stunning visuals and virtuosity.
With a history of over 50 years the Chinese Music Orchestra is led by renowned conductor Hong Xia. Players use a combination of western and eastern instruments, including the sheng, an ancient flute, the liuqin mandolin, and the gaohu and the erhu, sometimes referred to as “the Chinese fiddle.”
