Bartlett Celebrates Sister City 5th Anniversary

It has been five years since the Village of Bartlett and Miaoli City, Taiwan became sister cities. The Village of Bartlett, Arts in Bartlett and the Taipei Economic
and Cultural Office (TECO) in Chicago will celebrate this special anniver-
sary with a program at Bartlett Village Hall, 228 S. Main Street, on Mon-

day, July 13 beginning at 10 a.m.

The program will open with greetings from Arts in Bartlett President Rita Lopienski, and Eric Chiou, President of the Midwest Hakka Association, and remarks by Bartlett Village President Kevin Wallace and TECO Am- bassador Calvin Ho. Musical performances will follow by Neo-Classic Chamber Ensemble, the Bartlett International Chorus and the Chicago Hakka Chorus.

Neo -Classic Chamber Ensemble was founded in 2003 by pianist Hsin-I Chen and consists of both U.S. and European-trained musicians who have toured throughout Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and the United States. The group will perform a handful of Hakka songs, titled together as “Impression of Formosa.”

The Bartlett International Chorus and the Chicago Hakka Chorus will perform together during the anniversary program, singing “Rain from the Sky” and “Hakka True Emotion.” In 2010 these two groups traveled to Taiwan for a concert tour and to formalize the Sis- ter City agreement.

Everyone is invited to come enjoy the musical program with a reception following, and help celebrate the Village of Bartlett’s 5-year friendship with Miaoli City.

 Who Are We?

 MISSION: The purpose of Arts in Bartlett is to improve the community by providing access to the arts. This 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, founded in 2002, brings diverse events to the Bartlett area, so that the multitude of cultural arts can be experienced and enjoyed by all. Through its activities, Arts in Bartlett wants to make the full variety of media and multicultural experiences accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, whether they want to create, actively participate, experiment,or simply appreciate the arts.

In 2015, Arts in Bartlett is now in its 13th year of carrying out its mission of providing more access to the arts. It is now involved in the visual, performing and literary arts.  

We continue to work toward the vision of Bartlett and the surrounding community as one that values and supports the arts. Much progress has been made, and the momentum is building for the cultural arts to have an even larger impact on Bartlett’s economy and quality of life. 

Our goal is to encourage all residents to make the arts an integral part of their lives. 

VISION: Arts in Bartlett envisions a community where the overall quality of life is enhanced and each individual is made richer through an open participation in the arts.
