Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden invites you to serenade under the moonlight with local musicians and artists at the 2018 Mid-Autumn Moon Festival!
At last year’s festival, we introduced visitors to the Four Arts of the Chinese scholars (music, Chinese chess, calligraphy, and painting). Going forward, we will be featuring one of the arts at each year’s celebration—beginning with music.
In Chinese culture, music is seen as an expression of the perfect harmony between the Earth, human beings, and the heavens above. Under the celestial and transcendent power of the moon, many ancient Chinese scholars composed music and poetry that united families and friends. At the 2018 Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, you will get to experience the connection between music and the moon, whose eternal nature inspired Chinese artistic tradition. Come along with your friends, family, and loved ones to sample mooncakes, release wishing lanterns in the garden's pond, and enjoy the various musical activities and performances celebrating the second largest festival in the Chinese calendar.
