China Club – Zen Restaurant

Written on April 28, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

The Chinese New Year dinner was held at the Zen Market Restaurant, this is located in the exclusive Bernabeu Stadium. Wine, exotic food, and football background were an astounding blend for a Friday night. There was not a better occasion like this one to taste the delicious food prepared specially for us IE students. In addition, we arranged surprise gifts for the lucky few who attended this dinner. Every attendee received a gift, a woman bag, Huawei smartphone and Las Rozas Village discount tickets were some of the notable gifts.

The event was a big hit; before announcing this event officially, all the tickets were already previously booked by the students who knew of this event’s existence. As a representative of the China club, we want to thank the students who spent that special day with us. I hope that night will remain as an affectionate memory in the many students who were unable to spend the night with their families, a memory with the IE community at its heart.

We finished the night with a lottery to choose the owners of the different presents, you could hear someone attempting to say “Happy New Year” in Chinese mixed with their own accent and people discovering the wonders of the food served, in addition to the football fans admiring the stadium. We are overjoyed and content that the students who attended this event had a great time.

Chinese New Year – Culture Event

Written on April 28, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

On the 5th February 2016, the China Club hosted an event celebrating the Chinese New Year enabling IE students the opportunity to spread the traditional Chinese atmosphere. Since most of the IE students are knowledgeable on Chinese stuff, all the members of the China Club agreed to hold an extraordinary event bringing unimaginable acts and activities to the IE campus. The programme ended up consisting of Dragon dancing, Martial arts performance, Guqi performance and Chinese Calligraphy. Initially we thought this programme was crazy and unachievable, but the IE spirit we had inside made us not give up this plan without at least trying it. “So, why not?” we told ourselves, becoming the motivation of each member in the China club.

The programme started of with the Chinese Calligraphy. This was warmly welcomed by many students who showed up to the site where the event was taking place to have their own name written in Chinese. Meanwhile, we could all hear the strong drumming overwhelming the crowd noise. “The Tiger!” a kid screamed upon witnessing the appearance of the performers. Despite all of us knowing the performers act was included in the programme we could not hold back our surprised faces when they arrived. Following up, we introduced the Guqi performance. For most of the integrants in the audience, it was the first time they saw the traditional Chinese music instrument, Guqi, and this experience was possible all thanks to an IE student who had knowledge in this exceptional instrument.IE China Club - Chinese New Year3

Lastly, a group of Kung Fu martial arts students perfected the closing performance, inducing an elated expression on the viewers by using their enthusiasm and charm. There were a couple of students who were brave enough to go onto the stage and try some of the Kong Fu moves. In the meantime, traditional food-Dim Sum and Spring Rolls- were offered to the people who attended the event. On behalf of the China club i would like to say we are glad we could make possible this event, with the participation of people from diverse nationalities and receiving positive feedback from the guests present in the event more than eager to participate in future event we might organise.

Chinese New Year is the most important festival in a year. To celebrate the new year and promote cultural exchange, IE China Club organised a celebration party on 27th February in Boom Room Club. More than 100 participants celebrated the festival and made the night memorable.

After the welcoming speech by the club’s president, the party began with variety shows performed by IE Dance Club and IE Music Club.  Whilst all the participants were enjoying the great show, delicious Chinese tapas and free drinks were also being served in the venue. The party ended with a grand lucky draw. 20 of our friends won quality Spanish Cava, courtesy of Freixenet. For the rest, they also enjoyed discounts on booking Air France/ KLM tickets as a return for their supports towards the event.

We hope to see you again for the next activities!

IE China Club Amber Quartet Concert

Written on July 24, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic

RDR_6994 China has always been well known for its typical cultural musical performance with Chinese traditional instruments, however during recent years, no one could perceive that one young Chinese chamber music performance group, the Amber Quartet, was emerging to shine on the global stage. As chamber music was traditionally perceived as a typical European classic musical performance, no one was expecting the Chinese group Amber Quartet could outstand and finally won one of the most important international awards. In the year of 2013, they won the Grand Prize in the Asia-Pacific Chamber Music Competition, which made them the first Chinese chamber music group to win such prize. Composed of four members, they performed around the world on behalf of the top music criterion of China, their footprints spread all over concert halls of Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, USA, Australia, Japan and Korea.

During this year, as they are now studying abroad at the Queen Sofia College of Music in Madrid, so our IE China Club took the big advantage of this amazing news and invited this outstanding musician group to perform in IE Business School.

Even we are now having the best business studying environment in Spain at IE, there should be some moments that we should pull ourselves back and don’t forget to keep dreaming with music and art. With this idea, after months of communication and preparation, an exclusive concert of chamber music was carried out with the help of the Amber Quartet, and it lightened up the air of IE campus. Inside the exquisite building of the Paper Pavilion, Both IE students, alumnus and faculty members enjoyed a great performance from the Amber Quartet. 

RDR_7008RDR_7050They performed various compositions, including both classic chamber music pieces and also pieces recomposed from traditional Chinese music. The audience enjoyed every moment of the concert, and didn’t want to leave even after the encore performance. After the performance, the Amber Quartet members also joined the IE community for a cocktail on the terrace in front of the Paper Pavilion, therefore the joyful communication for both sides gave a perfect ending to this concert event.
