2023 is ending and what’s your plan to bid farewell in style to the rich year on New Year’s Eve? The “Star-studded Ballet Gala: Macao Orchestra New Year’s Concert”, presented by SJM Resorts, Ltd, will take place on December 31, at the Grand Auditorium, Macao Cultural Centre (CCM). Come enjoy a night of enchanting music and elegant dancing and open a new page in the New Year.
The “Star-studded Ballet Gala” will be conducted by Lio Kuokman, Macao Orchestra’s Music Director and Principal Conductor, featuring cellist and celebrity singer, Nana Ou Yang, who will perform several cello solos as well as sing her own originals. In addition to this aural fruition, the Hong Kong Ballet will also be invited to perform on the night of New Year’s Eve, delivering a delightful audiovisual show and sending the warmest New Year wishes to the public.
Nana Ou Yang, a multi-faceted artist, student and more, began learning cello at six, gave her first solo concert at 12, and at 13 was admitted to America’s top music school, the Curtis Institute of Music. Later, she was accepted into the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Such course certainly speaks for her musical prowess! This concert offers a rare opportunity to appreciate Nana’s live performance on the cello and of singing her own originals.
