Come join us for lunch on Sunday 2 Feb followed by a Chinese New Year Celebration concert at the Boston Public Library. The concert is free and open to all.

For more info see http://www.bpl.org/programs/calendar.htm#/?i=2

We will meet at Thai Basil Restaurant at 11:30am for lunch, then walk over to the Public Library in Copley Sq around 1:30pm. The restaurant is close to the BPL. Please indicate in your RSVP if you are going for the concert only just so I get a headcount for the restaurant reservation.

The concert starts at 2pm in the Rabb Lecture Hall. If you are not joining us for lunch, please plan on meeting us in the library lobby at 1:40pm.

    Doors might be locked. If you get here, try to get in and grab any seat you can. They are being pretty strict about seating.

      Forgot to mention that this performance is by the members of the Boston Chinese Musicians Association - http://bcma.us/­ FYI...

    I am not sure about the lunch yet. However, i will definitely attend the concert.
    I went there last year and I had a BLAST: Real Pro level performance , full display of all major Chinese music instruments, such as erhu, "Zheng"; You'll get to appreciate almost all the well-known Chinese music one more time.
