CHINESE NEW YEAR OUTREACH

One of many community outreach activities for the CCCNJ Children's Choir was going to the Parsippany Public Library to celebrate Chinese New Year. Since this year is the celebration of the "Year of the Sheep", children sang "Baa Baa black sheep" in Mandarin. They also sang "Give me oil in my lamp" and the traditional Chinese New Year tune, "Gong xi, gong xi." Some of the children performed on their own instruments, such as flute, cello, violin, and er hu. Finally, after the performance, the younger children participated in many different activities, such as crafts and face painting, in which the older children helped out.
