Traditions and legends associated with moon worship go back for millennia in Chinese culture and are central to the Mid-Autumn Festival: an annual harvest festival that gained popularity during the Tang dynasty and remains one of the most important dates on the Chinese calendar today. China Institute will celebrate this year’s Festival with an afternoon of sizhu music which is being introduced and performed by the renowned Chinese musician Chen Tao. Hear examples of both Chinese and Western “moon music” while sampling traditional Chinese mooncakes! Attendees can also lose themselves in the spectacular vistas depicted in the China Institute Gallery exhibition Art of the Mountain: Through the Chinese Photographer’s Lens.
