The San Antonio Chinese Alliance and the Confucius Institute at UTSA plan a celebration of Chinese culture at the Chinese New Year Gala 3 p.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 8 at the performing arts center at Palo Alto College, 1400 W. Villaret Blvd.
The event will feature authentic Asian dance and musical performances by local and foreign artists.
Nancy Du, a member of the Chinese Alliance, said most of the musical performers are professionals who practice year-round for this event.
Du said in the past they have invited performers from China to perform at the event.
Susan Lien, vice president of the Chinese Alliance, recommends people go because every year the performances are different.
Lien said in the past they have had more 500 attendees, but this year they can seat only 400 people in the theater.
“We always have a full house,” Lien said.
Organizers are asking for $5 donations for alliance members and $10 for non-members.
