For the first time ever in Australia the Beijing Golden Sail Symphony Orchestra will perform for one concert only at the Sydney Opera House. Over one hundred young and talented student musicians will play an auditory feast on Tuesday 1 October, the Chinese National Day.
Established in 1988, the Beijing Golden Sail Symphony Orchestra was formed by the Beijing 101st high school students' amateur art groups, and was the first student orchestra in China. After over two decades, the Beijing Golden Sail Symphony Orchestra currently has 180 members and has cultivated more than 500 young music students to higher education and pursuing their musical career.
The Beijing Golden Sail Symphony Orchestra has rehearsed more than 160 pieces of both Chinese and internationally well-known music and has been invited to perform in numerous countries including Germany, USA, France, Italy, Austria, Russia, Japan, Singapore. In July 1998, the orchestra was invited to attend the second World Youth Music Festival and performed with world famous conductor Valery Gergiev and won the Outstanding Performance Award.
Led by the Maestro conductor Fengde Liu, the Beijing Golden Sail Symphony Orchestra will bring a collection of fresh interpretations of a number of world acclaimed master pieces like Carmen Suite, the unforgettable theme music of 'The Magnificent Seven' and excitingly, this young troupe will also perform well known Chinese music such as Ode to Red Flag & Ode to the Motherland as well as iconic Australian traditional folk songs such as Click Go the Shears.
