    The mystical beauty of the ancient Chinese culture mixed with colorful images of dragons and lanterns evoked the final day of the Chinese Cultural Heritage dancing and musical performance by Shenyang Normal University Band organized by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Confucius Institute (TAG-Confucius) at Al Hussein Cultural Center.

    Visions of ancient China were set in motion through a hazy atmosphere as varied Chinese musical instruments played in the background drawing images of love and peace.
    The May 29-30 event, held under the patronage of HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman and CEO of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org), was attended by a host of diplomats headed by the Chinese and Korean ambassadors and thousands of fans of the Chinese culture.

    Mr. Abu-Ghazaleh said, "This is the Chinese culture in all its glory and beauty; the wonderful depiction of certain eras in the Chinese civilization mixed with the beauty of sound decorated our senses. The performance opened the door to many people who are excited to know more about the Chinese culture. It was a celebration of life."

    Meanwhile, according to Mr. Mohammad Sami Al-Kharouf, TAG-Confucius director, the event was a part of TAG-Confucius program which focuses on enriching and promoting knowledge of the Chinese culture.
    "The numerous sketches, the colorful images and costumes made us all feel as part of the event.

    We, at TAG-Confucius, will try to introduce the Chinese culture in all its glory through more events," he said.
