Celebrate "China Day" with an orchestral concert of music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Zhou Long, including the world premiere of Man of Iron and the Golden Spike–a symphonic oratorio honoring 19th-century Chinese railroad workers of the American West. Performed by The Orchestra Now, Jindong Cai conducting, with the China Now Festival Chorus and soloists.
