Jiangsu folk music features varied repertoires and diverse styles. As an excellent folk orchestra in Jiangsu, the Suzhou Chinese Orchestra is known for its lively and smart playing style through bold innovation.

The concert accumulates works from famous composers, including Guan Naizhong’s “A Journey in Lhasa” which depicts the mystical yet beautiful nature and people of the holy place of Tibet; Xu Changjun’s “Dragon Dance” and Liu Changyuan’s “Dragon Soaring in the East” express the festive atmosphere by using a lot of percussions in their respective works. The iconic composer of the current Chinese orchestra world - Wang Danhong’s “Yangge on the Strings” depicts the dancing of the northern people in the Lantern Festival; Yangqin Concerto “Rhapsody” composed by Wang Danhong will be performed by guest yangqin soloist Liu Yinxuan. The concert will be conducted by the celebrated conductor, SUCO’s artistic director and chief conductor Mr. Pang Ka Pang. In this special year, we use music to give our best prayers to the great ”OX Year” !
