Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration at the Field Museum

Ring in the Chinese Lunar New Year at the Field Museum!

Join artists from the Chinese Fine Arts Society in the Crown Family PlayLab as they lead children through interactive Ruan and Hide music and movement performances.

The first showing will take place from 1:30-1:50pm, and a second showing will take place from 2:10-2:30pm.

Ruan & Hide is a Chinese Folk-Fusion duet based in Chicago, Illinois. The performers bring their own musical traditions to the project creating a blend of traditional Chinese & Taiwanese folk melodies with modern world music rhythms, performed on Chinese lute and percussion. The name is a reference to the instruments used; the “Ruan” lute and the “Hide” covering of the drums with a whimsical nod to the expression “run and hide.”

Presented in partnership with the Chinese Fine Arts Society and Choose Chicago.
