Council of Asian Pacific Americans proudly delivered an extraordinary “Splendor of the East 2016”

On Saturday, May 14, 2016, the Council of Asian Pacific Americans (CAPA) has successfully hosted its popular annual signature event, the “Splendor of the East 2016” at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center at 15801 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI 48126. CAPA brings Asian Pacific Americans together with the community at large through our culture, education and community services.

This year’s event theme was: “Sights and Sounds of Asia”, an extraordinary collaboration of cultural depictions through music and dance performances that pay homage to places and cultures across Asia. Sights and Sounds of Asia enticed everyone in attendance their senses with both a traditional and contemporary composition of artistry.

CAPA sincerely appreciates the outstanding efforts of its Art Director/Production Manager, CAPA sponsors, Choreographers and performers, the Production staff, Board members, and volunteers who have contributed to the success of the Splendor of the East 2016.

Distinguished guests and sponsors also attended the VIP reception for the Splendor of the East prior to the show. The CAPA Education Committee announced the APA Scholars Award at the VIP reception. The three outstanding students: Alexander Liu, Kathie Lee and Shyam Sudheendra, received their awards at the reception.

The Asian Pacific American community in Michigan is growing in size and strength, contributing to the State’s economy, diversity and vitality. CAPA’s signature events including the Splendor of the East continue to showcase the growing strength of the APA communities and their increasing contributions to the economy and society at large.
