(1) This afternoon we have a special musical guest, a musical performance by Mrs. Cherry Chen.
She will be playing for us three classical songs on a Chinese instrument called “gu zheng”, known in English as the Chinese zither.
Many of you probably seen it in foreign movies. It has 21 strings and is plucked by both the left and right hand to create its melodies.
The instrument was invented more than 2,000 years ago and remains a center piece of classical Chinese instruments.
The first song played is called the “Dance Music of Yi Tribe".
(b) The second song is called "Fishermen's Song at Evening Tide". It starts with a truly poetic slow movement, describing the fishermen rowing their boats back home from a day's hard work in the beautiful sunset.
© The last song is Red Blossom on the Mountain, which describes a beautiful scenery on the
mountain. People are hiking and enjoying the blossom of red flowers in the early summer.

9. As a traditional Chinese dress. Qipao is like a wonderful blossom in China's bright-colored fashion scene. Because of its unique charm, many women wear it to show their special grace.
The history of Qipao
In the early 17th century in North China, Nurhachi, set up the Eight
Banner System. Later he led his troops into Beijing and overthrew the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). After years, a collarless tube-shaped gown was well developed, which was worn by both genders. This is the early version of the Qipao. It became kind of popular among the royal palace of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) to show the Manchu nobility.
10. Most of them were made of silk, and embroidered, with thick laces trimmed at the collar, sleeves and edges. The dress empresses of past dynasties wore them. Their style of dress was noted as the highest of standards for Chinese women for several thousand years.
Qipao characterize Chinese women's modesty, softness and beauty. Like Chinese women's personality.
Like many fashions, the beauty of Qipao stands away from others.
Stunning is one of its features from the collar, loop, chest, waist
and hips to the lower hem. Qipao completely shows off a woman's figure. Not only does it lay stress on the natural beauty of a female figure, but also makes women's legs appear more slender.
Mature women in Qipaos can display their graceful manner
Today, Qipao is also the modern designer's fashion icon.
Please give these beautiful ladies round of applause.
At this time, I would like to invite all the performers to the front stage to be recognized. Please give them round of applause.
This will conclude our Chinese New Year celebration, there are snacks on the side for everyone to enjoy.
Thank you all for coming, I want to wish everyone xin nian kuai le/Happy New Year
