Last Sunday, the annual Chinese New Year show put on by the Confucius Institute at CSU was held at the beautiful Lincoln Center in downtown Fort Collins.  Chuchang Chiu got the ball rolling, gathering several local musicians to play an ensemble of songs representing the CSU Chinese Club.  They were Yue Wu (piano), Eric Campbell, Anna Isernia, and Demery Ward (vocals).  I had the privilege of backing up with the guitar.  We played excerpts from "Tomorrow Will Be Even Better", Hand In Hand", and "Friends", all popular Chinese songs.  We practiced quite a few times to get ready and had fun all the way!

There were many acts there along with a nice-sized crowd.  We didn't hit the stage until a couple of hours into the program and the experience didn't disappoint.  I thought Yue's playing was beautiful and the vocals were passionate and moving.  The whole crowd was clapping along for the final minute of "Friends".  Couldn't have been happier for my teammates.  Music unites us all ...
