Please join us for a very special Second Sunday performance of Chinese Opera by the renowned Yat Sing Music Club. Founded in 1941 by Chinese immigrants, this musical group was formed as a way to raise money for China’s defense against Japan during World War II. When the war ended, the group continued to play together. Today, the club is regularly called upon by the community to perform at various functions.

The Yat Sing Music Club will perform a selection of Guang Dong music, songs, and Cantonese operas played in ensembles of plucked and bowed stringed instruments, flutes, and various cymbals, gongs, and drums.
