After two days of relax, during which SCHO (Shanghai Chinese Orchestra) went shopping in Metzingen and visited the city of Brussels, the group reached The Netherlands yesterday February 4, 2015 in the early afternoon. A wonderful and sunny weather welcomed the Orchestra in Groningen.The Grand Chinese New Year Concert Tour was already hosted in The Netherlands several times, but yesterday it was the first time for the Grand Concert to be held in De Oosterpoort, Groningen.As often (if not always) happens when the Grand Chinese New Year Concert arrives in a new place for the first time, yesterday in Groningen people entered the concert hall with curiosity and leaved it as Chinese music enthusiasts. Wang Fujian and his Orchestra got here one more standing-ovation!
According to the Chinese Calendar, the New Year will soon begin. During this period in China, families reunite, cook and eat together. All our musicians yesterday couldn’t join their families to bring to Groningen’s audience the magic of Chinese Music. Wu Promotion wants here to express its gratitude to each of these wonderful musicians. Thanks SCHO!
