Xilin Proudly Presents the 10th Annual Lantern Festival!
Xilin's Lantern Festival special event began in 2006 with support from the SECA fund from the city of Naperville. Over the past nine years, Xilin Association, Xilin Performing Arts Academy, and the Xilin Chinese School dance programs have worked diligently to bring the best aspects of eastern culture to the Naperville community.
Our special guest artists this year will include the Professional Dance Company from HuaZhong University, and the Mongolia musician MengHeDaLai. The HuaZhong Dance Company will bring the beautifully choreographed Chinese ethnic dance to audiences. In addition, you will also experience the unique HuMai, the famous Mongolian ethnic songs, accompanied by the beautiful sound of the Mongolian Horse Head String Instrument.
With each year, the Lantern Festival brings to life a piece of unique Chinese culture and history with brilliant costumes, vibrant music, and exciting dance. For the 10th anniversary, the Lantern Festival will send our audience through a marvelous adventure through Chinese culture. Come join us as we celebrate the Year of the Goat!
