“A Journey to China” Chinese Youth Arts Festival

“A Journey to China” Chinese Youth Arts Festival will be
held
May 28, 2006, at Fort Mason Center’s Cowell Theater. The Cowell Theater is located at Fort Mason Center, Marina Boulevard at Buchanan Street, San Francisco.

“A Journey to China” Chinese Youth Arts Festival features the music and
performing arts students from Alice Fong Yu Alternative School in San Francisco
performing Chinese music, percussion, dance, brush painting, martial arts, lion
dancing, and more! Combining direct documentary film footage shot by this year’s
8th Graders’ visit to China with special sets and lighting design, master
Chinese artists from different disciplines work together with these young
artists to create a highly original multi-dimensional stage performance.

The event is part of the Youth for Youth World Music & Arts Fest is an annual professional youth
concert series produced by Door Dog Music Productions that integrates young
artists ages 5-17 into a larger cross-cultural community of world music masters
and youth audiences. By bringing together multi-generations of artists and
families, the Youth for Youth World Music & Arts Fest provides a professional
performing arena for young people to experience cultural awareness through
traditional music, while building tolerance and respect for different cultures
and peoples of the world, as well as the pluralistic social perspectives
necessary to work across cultural differences.

The
Youth for Youth World Music & Arts Fest 2006 is produced by
Door Dog Music Productions in association with the Alice
Fong Yu Alternative School, the Asian Art Museum, and the Fort Mason Foundation.
