Suzhou Chinese Orchestra performs in the world's top concert hall in Lucerne, Switzerland
At 7:30 local time on January 26th, the Suzhou Chinese Orchestra held a grand Chinese Orchestra Concert of "Chinese music with Suzhou Charm" in the world's top concert hall, Lucerne Cultural and Art Center, Switzerland. This is the sixth performance of the European tour of the orchestra sponsored by National Art Fund for Foreign Cultural Exchange project. The Concert Hall tickets were snatched up and sold out. The whole performance could be described as "unusually buzzing".
"It's a great pleasure to see Chinese artists coming all the way to Switzerland on the eve of the Chinese New Year and presenting our Chinese traditional music in the form of Western orchestral music so splendidly," said Chu Kaimin, Vice Consul General of the Chinese Consulate General in Zurich and Liechtenstein, who took a group photo with the musicians after the concert ! 2019 marks the 69th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Switzerland. Music is borderless, and culture is a bridge connecting the hearts and minds of the people of the two countries. Tonight's concert marks a good beginning for a series of cultural exchanges between China and Switzerland in 2019. I also take this opportunity to wish people at home in Suzhou and the whole country and all the artists of Suzhou Chinese Orchestra a happy Spring Festival. I wish the European tour of the Suzhou National Orchestra a complete success!
