Bring in the Year of the Dog and join us as we start a new tradition in Adelaide. This concert of popular masterworks and traditional Chinese favourites is performed by artists direct from China: Muhai Tang, Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Tianjin Opera and Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Shanghai Philharmonic and Zhenjiang Symphony Orchestras.
Also on the program is the Australian Premiere of a specially commissioned cross-cultural work, Rooster Fanfare which premiered at the historic AFL match in Shanghai in May 2017.
The music represents the coming together of Australian and Chinese sounds and features the talents of Australian didjeridu virtuoso, William Barton plus drummers from the Shanghai Empireast Culture Group.
A concert that unites cultures through the power of music.
