Berklee Musically Celebrates Chinese New Year


The Berklee Chinese New Year Concert is an annual celebration among the Chinese and other Asian populations at Berklee. With a collaboration between the Chinese Student and Scholar Association (CSSA) and Bridge The Gap (BTG), this year’s concert aims to connect cultures and musicians, and to bridge the cultural gap between Western and Eastern music. The concert will emphasize the performing arts of China in a way that has never been shown before.


The development of Chinese music will be condensed into a 90-minute program, with unique arrangements of both Chinese folk songs and pop music, along with dance and other forms of performance, to show the audience a brand new perspective on China. Some of Berklee’s best Asian performers, as well as the well-known Berklee a cappella group Pitch Slapped, will be joining this concert.


The 2017 Berklee Chinese New Year Concert takes place at the Berklee Performance center on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017. Showtime is 8 PM. Admission: $8 Advance / $12 Day of Show.
