On January 29th, 2023, the 8th day of the Year of the Rabbit, the Minuteman Chapter of Student Corps organized a concert for Gracious Home Center in Burlington, MA, to welcome the Chinese New Year and bring some joy to the senior citizens there. 30 talented volunteers, ranging from enthusiastic five-year-olds to high schoolers, brought to the event not only musical performances of both Chinese folk tunes like 彩云追月 (“Colorful Clouds Chasing the Moon”) and Western pieces like a butterfly dance, a magic show, and a martial arts performance, all praised thoroughly by the staff and attendees. Thank you to all who participated in and helped organize this event; we hope everyone enjoyed the experience. We look forward to more events like this in the future and hope to make this concert a yearly occurrence!
