ALFRED, NY – The Alfred University Chamber Singers have been invited to perform next month at the Chinese Consulate in New York City.

The Chamber Singers will perform at the Chinese Consulate on Feb. 14 as part of the Chinese New Year celebration. The group is under the direction of Luanne Crosby, Alfred University professor of voice and chorus.

The celebration begins at 6 p.m. with musical performances, followed by a buffet style dinner, and concludes with a traditional fireworks display over the Hudson River.

Representatives of the Chinese Consulate visited Alfred University last November for the first National Conference of the K-12 Chinese Immersion Programs and attended the Nov. 3 “Legend of Silk” concert Nov. 3 held as part of the closing ceremonies. The Alfred University Chorus, Chamber Singers, the Alfred Tai Chi Group, and the Alfred University Guzheng Ensemble performed at the concert.
