Xinghai Concert Hall, the best concert venue in Guangzhou, this month started its annual new year music season.
Guangzhou New Year's Concert, the highlight of the music season, has become a brand of the city and is staged every year, rain or shine. The 2021 New Year's Concert will be jointly performed by the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra (GSO), China Philharmonic Orchestra and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. It will be conducted by GSO's music director Long Yu and joined by several other brilliant musicians, including world-renowned soprano Huang Ying and young violinist Paloma So. All programs will be famous Chinese music pieces, such as "Ode to the Yellow River, from the Yellow River Piano Concerto", "Sunshine Over Tashkorgan", "My Motherland", "Morning of the Miao Village" and "Father's Grassland, Mother's River".
