7:00 pm - Livingston High School Auditorium
The Livingston Committee for
Diversity will again present an evening of multi-cultural entertainment
on Feb. 28, 2010 at 7 PM in the Livingston High School auditorium.
scheduled are the Chinese School, the Asian Indians of Livingston
and a band known in Livingston - the Juke Box Memories. They have
performed at St. Philomena’s and at Evening under the Stars.
The Asian Indian group will sing the American and Indian national
anthems. They will also do a dance performance.
The Chinese School will be performing the following:
1. Song: Farewell: lyrics by poet, actor and playwright Li Shutong,
music adapted from American song "Dreaming of Home and Mother"
composed by John P. Ordway in 1868.
2. Dance: Red Lantern: Children dance in colorful traditional Chinese
costumes to welcome spring. Their faces are as bright as the red
lanterns. Their happiness fills the holiday air.
3. Instrument Ensemble: The North Wind: This song is adapted from
the famous Chinese opera “White-Haired Girl.”
4. Ladies' Dance: Traces of Melody: Combining the Chinese fan and
the koto, a traditional string instrument, this dance is an elegant
and classical presentation of Chinese performing arts. Dancers dressed
in the style of the early twentieth century move gracefully with
fans, lending the music a peaceful and nostalgic air.
5. Tai Ji demonstration: A form of Chinese Kung Fu which promotes
determination, strength, discipline, and confidence.
6. Finale Song: You and Me: 2008 Olympic theme song. We will sing
once in Chinese, and twice in English. The audience will join us
the second time.
round out the entertainment we will have the Juke Box Memories with
Joe Satillo on lead guitar, Pete Louerde lead singer, Dominick Cocuzzo
on drums, John Lamorgese singer and guitar, Rich Fontaine on keyboard
and vocals, Jack West on saxophone and Tom LeClair on bass guitar.
