This opening concert was directed by Long Yu, a distinguish conductor and music director of the GSO, with violist Diyang Mei and erhu player Lu Yiwen as soloists. Diyang Mei received the position of first principal viola at the Berliner Philharmoniker in February, which is the first time for a Chinese musician to be given a position with this orchestra.

During the concert, these musicians performed two new repertoires dedicated to the 65th anniversary titled "Metropolis" and "La joie de la souffrance". According to the GSO, the two new works are also highlights of its national tour from September 10 to 17.
