The San Francisco Symphony’s Chinese New Year celebration was a feast for the senses at Davies Symphony Hall. Beginning with a pre-reception party, the night’s musical program led by Mei-Ann Chen was chock full of traditional folk sounds and a wide range of work from Asian composers. Guests adhered to the banquet’s “Diner en Rouge” theme glamorously, rocking ensembles fit for royalty in varying shades of red.

At the highly-anticipated event, Adam Larsen-designed video projections set the backdrop for works like Chen Gang and He Zhan-Hao’s The Butterfly Lovers.
