Celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, it is a chance for friends and families to come together, enjoy the harvest and to celebrate the moon, a symbol of unity.

Now in its 31st year, the Chinese Fine Arts Society’s annual Music Festival in Honor of Confucius Competition has introduced young musicians to the rich heritage of Chinese culture through music. Alumni of this program have gone on to attend some of the country’s best music conservatories, and many have even developed highly successful professional music careers.
The goal of the Competition is to introduce young musicians to the sounds and colors of Chinese music (both contemporary and traditional), and also give them the experience of competing in a nurturing environment, receiving constructive feedback from local educators.
