Year of the Rooster Celebration

February 4 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dear Friends, thank you so much for your support to our gala!  This event has been completely sold out.  We are sorry that we will have to miss you.  Please check back periodically and we hope to see you in our next event.

Join us to celebrate the Chinese New Year of Rooster, the tenth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign.  Rooster is the epitome of fidelity and punctuality!  To welcome the Year of Rooster in style, the Chinese Society of Austin presents to you the following program lineup -

  • Lion Dance - a must-have in Chinese New Year celebration; upbeat drumming, vibrant costumes and festive dance will truly bring everyone into the holiday spirit.
  • Mandolin Orchestra by Austin Mandolin Orchestra - a 10-people orchestra will present memorable performances of traditional, classical and modern repertoire.
  • Chinese Song and Dance Ensemble by Austin Moonflower Performing Arts Group - a 40-member ensemble will showcase a medley of music and dance genres ranging from Chinese dance to Jazz.
  • Western Hip Hop, Ballet and Modern Dance Ensemble led by professional dancer and choreographer, Leo Paschal from Platinum Status.  The rhythms of this high energy performance will make you tap your toes!
  • Karaoke, authentic Chinese food and networking opportunities with City officials, distinguished community leaders and hundreds of guests at this formal sit-down dinner.

Aside from all the festivities, CSA is proud to have the renowned ophthalmologists, Dr. Mitchel Wong and Dr. Shannon Wong from Eye Institute in Austin, deliver a Keynote speech on "Giving Back".  This father-son duo recently made headlines for their philanthropic donation of $20M to Dell Medical Center.  Austin City Mayor Adler and Councilmember Gallo presented Dr. Mitchel and Shannon Wong a Proclamation and CSA was honored to host such a reception in the City Hall in honor of Dr. Wongs' charity work.  We are excited to have Dr. Mitchel Wong and Dr. Shannon Wong at the gala and look forward to hearing their inspiring stories!
