The 9th annual SFSV is a feast of arts, featuring Song of the Ocean.

(A) Global Spring Festival - The multi-culture production presents festive music and dance of Chinese, Indian, American, Tajikistan, Dai, Tibetan, and Filipino to entertain audiences of all ages. The legacy of Spring Festival can be traced back 10,000 years, to when the Chinese tribesmen settled down to grow crops. Spring was regarded as the right season to plan for a bumper harvest. Now in the 21st Century, one-quarter of humanity is celebrating the spring to hope for a better future. Presenting vibrant works from diverse art organizations and famous artists from China, Global Spring Festival truly celebrates one of the oldest world legacies as well as America's diversity and inclusiveness that make our country great and strong.

(B)Song of the Ocean - Multi-media epic production
Song of the Ocean - Entertaining and educational, the fantasy is inspired by the Chinese legend and the Western fairy tale. The Sea King of the West and the Sea King of the East agree to protect the ocean for the welfare of their subjects. The sea creatures, Lion Fish Warrior, Krill solders, Prince Triton, Gold Fish Princess, Mermaids, Nimo and Dory, Coral Fairy, and Kelp dancers display their spectacular performance to celebrate this festive occasion. At the end, the Sea King of the East transforms himself into the Chinese Celestial Dragon, surging to the heaven. In lightning and thundering, he makes rainfall nurturing all lives on earth.

Song of the Ocean is an East-Meets-West epic creation that aims to raise the awareness of the global warming crisis in which the ocean acidity is one of the key causes. Scientists have warned that global warming has led to unusual droughts and floods in many regions, including the United States and China. In reality, in September 2016, the leaders of the two countries that produce most pollution met in Hangzhou, China. President Obama and President Xi have reached an agreement to reduce world pollution in the future. We hope that the two major economic powers will lead the way in addressing the global warming crisis.

第9届硅谷春晚及飛揚藝術團26週年紀念盛大公演   

慶祝春節這一傳統可上溯一万年,自華夏部落定居開始建立農業社會時期,认定一年之計在於春。而今全世界百分之二十五的人口都在歡慶春節。春節已成為中華民族充滿著希望的節日,蘊含了萬事更新,以及一切美好的祝愿與禮慶,慶祝春節確實是具有普世同慶之恆久價值。希望2017年为大家带来新好運和新財富。 飛揚藝術團自2009年以來每年舉办《硅谷春晚》与全球华人和其他民族共享这一个最重要的中华节日。2017年适逢飛揚藝術團建團26週年, 为庆祝双喜盛会,飛揚特邀请湾区其他民族艺术团体200多演员共同推出一台辉煌巨制。内容有《全球庆新春》的多元民族歌舞、戲劇、武術、雜技,魔术等,老少咸宜。 另外, 特第9届"硅谷春晚"是星光闪闪的大型制作. 表演者选自硅谷的舞蹈, 武术,杂技,音乐等优秀艺术家,以及来自中国的特邀嘉宾: 著名国际歌星: 艾尔肯 Erkin Abdulla * 著名女高音王晓鸽 * 中国一级演员: 舞蹈家 韩峰, 京剧家, 马力, 音乐家吴树德

第9届的"硅谷春晚" 分两大单元:
(A)上半场 全球庆新春
        多元文化歌舞: 中国汉族,中国维吾尔族, 美国现代舞,阿根廷国标舞,菲律宾民间舞等
(B)下半场 - 多媒体制作 海洋之歌

本届隆重推出世界首演海洋之歌, 呈现一个童话般的海洋世界,西海国王和东海国王在水晶宫会面,同意一项协议,为所有海洋生物维护一个良好的生态环境。双方欢天喜地来庆祝这个普天同庆的节日。各海洋生物如珊瑚仙子,海带姑娘, 美人鱼,西海王子,东海公主,小丑鱼, 蓝克鱼, 虾兵,蟹将等等各显神通。最后,东海国王化为神龙,一冲飞天,在雷电交加中降雨,滋养大地。

海洋之歌是一个东西合壁的史诗创作,旨在提高全球暖化危机的意识,而海洋酸化是其中的关键原因。科学家已经发出警告,全球暖化令许多地区包括美国和中国造成了不寻常的干旱和洪水。现实中, 在2016年9月,世界上制造污染最严重的美国和中国的总统,在中国杭州举行会议。奥巴马总统和习主席达成了将来减少世界污染的协议。我们希望这两个经济大国领先努力解决全球变暖化的危机。海洋之歌是娱乐和教育并重的艺术巨作。
