On February 14, 2021, the Calgary Chinese Orchestra will host the online film premiere of Off to the Races to celebrate the 2021 Chinese New Year. The event features a musical short film, followed by an online after-party with interviews and SURPRISES!

Part music video and part documentary, the short film, Off to the Races, is about the classic Erhu piece called “Horse Race.” The film is a collaboration between the Calgary Chinese Orchestra, award-winning filmmaker Vicki Van Chau, and Calgary music producer Warren Tse. It features the members of the Calgary Chinese Orchestra and the global music community through an open call process.

With a little help from their friends, the Calgary Chinese Orchestra hopes to usher in the year of the Cow and bring a bit of joy to audiences with a new twist on a beloved classic!

The event is free and requires registration HERE.
