China Chinese National Orchestra
As the most representative domestic orchestra of Chinese traditional music, China Central Chinese Orchestra consists of a Chinese instruments band and a choir. The founder of the Orchestra was Li Huanzhi, the former Chair of Chinese Musicians Association and its current President is Xi Qiang. Since the creation of China Central Chinese Orchestra the musical life of the nation has been greatly enriched; a great number of traditional folk music have been adapted and recomposed.

Since its establishment, the orchestra has visited dozens of countries and regions in five continents many times, apart from its domestic road shows. In 1993, it founded the Orchestra Asia jointly with Ensemble Nipponia and South Korean National Orchestra to facilitate the creation and exchange of national music in Asia. In 1997, at the invitation of ICM from the U.S., it performed in dozens of American cities like New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Los Angeles, and co-performed with the world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma in Carnegie Hall. The orchestra held the China New Year's Day Concerts in Goldener Saal Wiener Musikvereins and Berlin Philarmonie in 1998 and 1999 respectively. It also performed for the opening ceremony of "Sino-French Culture Year" in 2003, bringing road shows for audiences in 11 French cities; and the year 2005 saw its performance in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. All these performances have succeeded. As the new century is around the corner, the orchestra has invited famous composers both at home and abroad to create many new works as well.
