Chinese New Year Concert
Adelaide Symphony Orchestra
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre & Adelaide Symphony Orchestra
Celebrate the Year of the Pig with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra at this family event that draws on both the old and new, from China and the West.
Led by Chinese-Australian conductor, Dane Lam, Principal Conductor of China’s Xi’an Symphony Orchestra, the concert features the remarkable Australian-Chinese Cellist, Li-Wei Qin, described by Gramophone Magazine as “a superbly stylish, raptly intuitive performer.”
Delight in the beautiful melding of cultural traditions as we continue the tradition of a symphonic tribute to the Chinese New Year here in Adelaide.
Three generations were so very grateful for the Chinese New Year ‘proms’ you delivered on Sunday afternoon. The music and programming were tremendous for their diversity as well as brilliant execution. Your shared vision and endeavour are of great service to our State, its sense of community and prosperity. Audience comment
