Phelps Mansion Celebrates Chinese New Year

The Phelps Mansion is celebrating the year of the sheep all in honor of the Chinese New Year.
Sunday, the mansion hosted several performances for the celebration including ones from a Chinese opera singer, a bamboo flute player.

And faculty members from Binghamton University even showed up to sing with the Chinese Opera singers.
It was all just $10 for to catch the artistic performances.

Phelps Mansion House Manager Joe Schuerch said, "It's a great opportunity for us to bring people in who wouldn't have otherwise come in so they can see what the house is all about and then learn something about a different culture."

The holiday honors household ancestors and heavenly deities and is also described as the most important social and economic holiday in China.
