Lunar New Year

with the Minnesota Orchestra

Sat Jan 28, 2023

Orchestra Hall

The Minnesota Orchestra marks the 2023 Lunar New Year, and the Year of the Rabbit, with a performance featuring music that honors family traditions and themes of unity and health.

This program is presented as part of The Great Northern.

A Few Things to Know

  • This performance marks the Minnesota Orchestra's second Lunar New Year celebration and we're thrilled to welcome back conductor Junping Qian.
  • Though China has officially moved to the Gregorian calendar like much of the rest of the world, the lunar calendar remains central to major holidays, just like the Lunar New Year.
  • Celebrations for the Lunar New Year and surrounding Spring Festival can last up to 16 days, making it the longest Chinese holiday observed.
