Thirty-one of the performers, age 8 to 14, are with the China Central Television Galaxy Children’s Choir.

Their colleagues, age 16 to 20, will showcase traditional instruments and dances from the China Secondary Art School in association with the Art College of the University of Inner Mongolia. In all, 66 talented youths perform on the cultural arts tour.


 

The groups also have shows booked for BYU-Hawaii and Polynesian Cultural Center Feb. 17-19.
