Trine students perform at Chinese New Year party

February 14, 2013

ANGOLA, Ind. – Five Trine students sang Chinese songs during a Chinese New Year party in Fort Wayne.

Students performed three songs, "Sorry, My Chinese is Not Very Good," "Happy Chinese New Year" and "12 Zodiacs." The students are enrolled in Chinese language classes at Trine that are taught by Yi-Hua "Sunny" Chan, an adjunct professor of Chinese in the Department of Language & Humanities.

"The students were excited to demonstrate what they've learned," Yi-Hua said of her students who performed Sunday during the talent program at the Fort Wayne Chinese Families & Friends Association's Chinese New Year Celebration.

Students who performed were Amanda Fager, a Middle College student from Angola; Carolyn Frederick, a freshman general business major from Clinton, Mich.; Rachel Morris, a freshman computer engineering major from Plainfield; Caitlyn Ritter, a sophomore management major from Milroy; and Jessica Van Tilburg, a senior accounting major from Angola.

Students also performed the dance moves featured on the music video "12 Zodiacs," a song by Leehom Wang that is one of the most popular in China and Taiwan. Wang won the Best Asian Artist Award at the Mnet (music network) Asian Music Awards in late 2012.
