Belmont Students Celebrate Chinese New Year 2013
Dr. Qingjun (Joan) Li’s Elementary Chinese class was invited to perform at the annual Chinese New Year Celebration Gala hosted by the Greater Nashville Chinese Association (GNCA) on February 2. The Chinese New Year, celebrated on February 10 this year, is the most important festival for all Chinese people no matter whether they are in China or live abroad. The Belmont students’ performance included guitar and dancing, and they sang a popular song entitled “The Moon Represents My Heart” in Chinese with an audience of about 500 people in attendance. Because of their impressive performance, the group received an invitation to perform at the Vanderbilt University Chinese Student and Scholar Association (VUCSSA) New Year Gala on February 9 for an audience of about 1,200. Jackson Wells, a student in Belmont’s Intermediate Chinese class played guitar and performed a song both in Chinese and English that he wrote, entitled “Lovesick.”
