Sherry Music Academy in association with Sands End Arts & Community Centre presents a Chinese New Year event to celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dragon.

2:30 – 5 PM, Music Masterclass (Public), Main Hall

Presented by Professor Gabrielle Lester, Assistant Head of Strings (Orchestral), Royal College of Music. Audiences are invited to listen and enjoy as outstanding young musicians from Sherry Music Academy play their demonstration pieces, and receive the professor’s feedback on their performance.

Drop in, no booking necessary.

4- 7 PM, Traditional Chinese New Year experience – dumpling making demonstration, Walnut Tree Cafe

Nothing symbolizes Chinese New Year more than dumpling-making, when the entire family or group pitches in to fold minced meat and vegetables into thin pastry skins for the soup pot. So why not come and see it for yourself as members of our Chinese community demonstrate their traditional New Year pastime, and you might even be lucky enough to enjoy the taste of a juicy Chinese “jao zi” dumpling or two.

Drop in, no booking necessary.

7 – 8 PM, Chinese New Year concert, Main Hall

To celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dragon, Sherry Music Academy will perform music from the four corners of China – Xinjiang in the west to Jiangsu in the east, Mongolia in the north to Hong Kong in the south – featuring Chinese traditional instruments and songs.

Free tickets but booking required. Please visit the Eventbrite link to book.

All Sherry Music Academy events are free entry, however donations to the Academy are welcome.
