Band Inspires Dancing In China

The Concordia Band also plays polka — but only in China. The band is currently touring Hong Kong and mainland China. They performed their first concert at United International College in Zhuhai to a capacity crowd.

After the concert, conductor Dr. Scott Jones invited the audience to interact with the band members. A small group of students played northern Minnesota waltz and polka music, and a few students taught the crowd some dance steps. Soon the foyer was filled with the sounds of feet moving to the rhythm of the joyful tunes.

The students formed the polka band as a way to share culture and develop friendships on the tour.
