Chinese New Year Concert

A very special concert for the Chinese community of Athens took place in Artemis Concert Hall on Sunday, 27 January 2019, in collaboration with Embassy of the People’s Republic of Athens, Hebei Department of International Cultural Exchanges and Hebei Department of Culture and Tourism. 

Besides the classical pieces that were played, rare works of Chinese composers were performed by the orchestra and great Chinese soloists with traditional Chinese instruments (pipa, erhu, zheng) enchanted the audience. The sound of the symphonic orchestra siding those exotic instruments coming from the Far East, created a very interesting effect.
