About our Performers
Greg Lum will be performing classic magic tricks, some having their origins as far back as the Tang Dynasty. He was born and raised in San Francisco, works for SF Recreation and Parks and is a Instructor of Floral Design at the Randall Museum.
Jing Cai Taichi Team is a community group focused on building stronger body and improving internal energy flow. They enjoy group Tai chi at West Sunset playground as they learn to relax and enjoy life, feeling younger at heart.
Jiu Jin Shan Chinese Chorus is a singing group established since 1992. Its goal is to encourage the community, including the ones who are tone-deaf, to use the bel canto vocal technique to sing Mandarin, English and Italian songs.
The singing group has hosted and performed so many successful concerts in the past 30 years. Small groups of their members constantly perform and give joy to the elders in local senior centers.
San Francisco Sunset District Dance Group has been established for 22 years. Enthusiastic dance and fitness participants have learned various dance styles at the Sunset Recreation Center, experiencing both joy and physical exercise. In their spare time, members actively participate in social events, promoting traditional Chinese culture, and have been featured multiple times in local prominent media.
