China’s Hangzhou Normal University will present “An Oriental Monsoon” Sunday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. in the University Theatre at Christian Brothers University. The program will feature classic Chinese dance, instrumental solos, opera pieces and more. All will be performed by Chinese artists.

The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited to 500.

“An Oriental Monsoon” is sponsored by the Confucius Institute at the University of Memphis (CIUM). The CIUM is one of fewer than 10 locations that Hangzhou Normal University will visit this year in the United States.

“We are honored to host our guests from Hangzhou Normal University as we celebrate the Chinese New Year,” said Dr. Hsiang-te Kung, director of the CIUM and 75th direct descendant of Confucius. “We are so pleased to host this event at Christian Brothers University this year as we continue to focus on community outreach with our school partners to promote the Chinese language and culture.”
