China’s 60 top performing artists charmed the Twin Cities audience with the latest achievements of Chinese art through a vibrant blend of singing, dancing, opera, folk music and acrobatics.

Among them were Consul Huang Ping of the Chinese Consulate General in Chicago and Mark Ritchie, Secretary of State of Minnesota.
