On Saturday, June 17, the South Bay chapter hosted a performance at the Villa Fontana Senior Center. This entertaining 1-hour program featured a professional performance from the California Youth Chinese Symphony Ambassadors. They are a talented group of performers hand-selected to promote Chinese music. The Ambassadors gave the seniors an amazing performance, featuring soloists and group performances. The songs were lively and cheerful, and the seniors greatly enjoyed this concert. Afterwards, seniors had the chance to ask questions, and the performers eagerly introduced their unique Chinese instruments. Overall, it was a very successful performance, and we felt a strong connection with the seniors through the music.
