Song of the Phoenix
2020 Calgary Chinese New Year Concert
Facet Music’s 3rd annual event, titled “Song of Phoenix - 2020 Chinese New Year Concert”, will take place February 1, 2020 at 7:30pm, at the Grand theatre downtown (608 1 St SW, Calgary, AB T2P 1M6).
This year we celebrate the Chinese mythological bird, Feng Huang — the Chinese Phoenix — which symbolizes high virtue, grace and prosperity. It also embodies duality and symbolizes the union of male and female spirits. Throughout its long history, Feng Huang has been an inspiration for people’s lives, and continues to influence creative lives today.
The concert features internationally renowned pianist Corey Hamm and his duo PEP (Piano and Erhu Project); Suona virtuoso Wu Zhong-xi; cutting-edge singer/songwriter FOONYAP; dynamic jazz trombonist Carsten Rubeling; choreographer/dancer Barbara England and her newly commissioned work; the one and only Calgary Chinese Orchestra, as well as many local talents.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Facet Music has consulted the government and Alberta Health Services about holding concerts in light of the situation with the coronavirus outbreak in China. Their answer was ”the risk is extremely low”. Unfortunately, this doesn’t account for the community’s fear of gatherings right now, which will drastically affect the attendance of our upcoming events.
It is therefore with great regret that Facet Music has decided to cancel the February 2 show of Song of the Phoenix - 2020 Calgary Chinese New Year Concert.
However, we will go ahead with the February 1 show. We will combine the audience from both nights to that evening. If any ticket holders for the February 2 show do not wish to come or cannot attend on February 1, we will refund their tickets. We will contact ticket holders presently.
Facet Music is donating half the box office proceeds toward providing protective face masks and other medical supplies to those who need them in China.
We sincerely hope for your understanding under these difficult circumstances.
