Established in 1995, Yellow River Performing Arts (YRPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cultural exchange between the United States and China through music, song, and dance.

The Chinese singers, artists and musicians led by Mrs. Zuo Yang, the director of YRPA, have been promoting cultural exchange between the U.S. and China for more than twenty years since 1995. They have been able to assimilate to American culture while also being able to express and educate others about their Chinese heritage through music, cultural dance and martial arts.

YRPA held its first performance at Chicago’s Orchestra Hall to commemorate the 50th anniversary of World War II in 1995. This performance won YRPA recognition across the Midwest. For many years, the America Cultural Exchange Association awarded YRPA as one of the top ten outstanding organizations in the Midwest for its active participation in cultural activities.

The group has performed in hundreds of performances across the U.S. and abroad, including China and Fiji. YRPA specializes in traditional Chinese instruments, dance, kung fu, and chorus, adding touches of their own style along the way. In addition to their performances, YRPA also has held music seminars and teaching classes in many colleges in Chicagoland area. As part of Beijing Olympics events in 2008, Director Yang worked together with Barrington High School (BHS) choir director, brought more than 30 boys and girls in BHS choir to sing/perform in Beijing and Shanghai.

YRPA welcomes people of all backgrounds, cultures, and experiences, who are interested in the performing arts, to join the group to promote the cultural exchange between the United States and China. As a part of YRPA, you will benefit from learning the arts, performing, making new friends and being a more active part of the cultural exchange between the United States and China.
