Pre-Concert: The VA’V Young Ensemble, directed by Vân-Ánh Võ, performs a special concert in the Fisher Family Lobby to begin the closing day of the festival. The ensemble features students from San Francisco, San Jose, and Fremont, playing traditional Vietnamese instruments, and performing a selection of Vietnamese folk songs, medleys, arrangements of pop music, and more.
Kronos Festival 2016 concludes with a family-friendly celebration of Lunar New Year, featuring Kronos performing with special guests from musical traditions around the globe. Guest performers include Vietnam-born đàn Tranh player Vân-Ánh Võ, UK-born multi-instrumentalist David Coulter, and Malian balafon player Fodé Lassana Diabaté, with a lion dance performed by San Francisco’s own Chung Ngai Dance Troupe. Chung Ngai has been part of the Bay Area’s cultural landscape for fifty years as a proponent of Chinese performing arts, and Kronos is thrilled to welcome one of our city’s premiere lion dance troupes to the 2016 festival.
