In conjunction with the preview of 100 Years of Chinese American History in Minnesota Photo Exhibition I and Pan Asian Arts Festival, the Minnesota Chinese Music Ensemble (MNCME) held a concert, 100 years of journey...Remember the past, Honor the present, Celebrate the future at the Weyerhaeuser Auditorium, Landmark Center, St. Paul, Minn.

The concert was held to commemorate the many brave and selfless people who over the past 100 years sacrificed and dedicated their lives to make China a republic. Music pieces that were performed were chosen to represent a person or an event during each decade.

The MNCME has offered annual concerts to the public since 1987 and actively participates in festive gatherings of the community. The ensemble performs music ranging from classical selections to contemporary folk songs. They also collaborate with Western music groups, commissioning and performing works composed of both Chinese and Western musical instruments. MNCME strongly believes that music is an international language that transcends cultural boundaries.

The Republic of China (Taiwan) Centennial Celebration Commission of MN (ROC100 MN), which sponsored this concert also sponsored another music festival the following week that featured The Chairman, a popular rock band from Taiwan.  

The ROC 100 MN's next event takes place on June 16 at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. For more details visit their Web site at www.roc100minnesota.info.
