Alumni Come to Celebrate Chinese New Year With Beida Student Symphony Orchestra Delegation
  


    
    
    Alumni from as far as New Haven came to celebrate the Spring Festival with Beida Vice Chair Yang He and the Beida Student Symphony Orchestra delegation held on January 21 at Golden Unicorn restaurant in Chinatown in Manhattan. Close to 40 alumni from New York City and the states of New Jersey and Connecticut participated in this first event hosted by Peking University Alumni Association of the Greater New York (PKUAAGNY) in 2009.
    
    Beida Student Symphony Orchestra has won numerous awards in China and was invited to perform at Stanford and New York University before they came to perform a few selected programs and celebrate the Chinese New Year with alumni in the Greater New York Area. To match the goodwill of the guests, local alumni also performed for the delegation. One in particular is none other than the former PKUAAGNY president Scott Shi. His beautiful tenor voice dazzled the entire audience.
    
    At this event, Vice Chair Yang He also highlighted recent development at Beida in its effort to become a world-class university. He also invited alumni to participate in the celebration of 90th anniversary of the May 4 Movement at Beida this year and pledged, on behalf of Beida, strong support to PKUAAGNY.
    
    Many of the alumni participated for the first time in an event organized by PKUAAGNY. A significant portion of the alumni work and live in Connecticut or New Jersey and specifically came to the City for this event. One particular alumnus said: ^The number of activities (organized by PKUAAGNY) has significantly increased last year and I am really encouraged. ̄ Several alumni signed up to help out in future activities.
