China Philharmonic Orchestra Debuted in South Asia, Realizing another “Silk Road” Legend

Wu Promotion cooperated with the China Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) and accomplished "Maritime Silk Road Tour 2016".

From late April to early May, 2016, Wu Promotion cooperated with the China Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) and accomplished "Maritime Silk Road Tour 2016". In nine days, CPO not only gave three concerts in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India, but also participated in local cultural events and non-profit workshops. This is the first time for a China’s orchestra to perform in South Asian countries, and it is another historical moment achieved together by Wu Promotion and CPO.

The program of the “Maritime Silk Road 2016” includes both Chinese pieces and western classical works such as Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor. Folk pieces of the three countries were also performed.

The tour echoes China’s “One Belt One Road” Strategy and it is the first time for a China’s orchestra to perform along the Maritime Silk Road. It not only made history in the development of Chinese orchestras, but also an important event in the local countries. Former President of Indonesia Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibe, Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisen as well as other statesmen all attended the concert.

With the strong support of the Ministry of Culture of China (Bureau for External Affairs), Cultural Affairs Office of Embassy of China in Indonesia, Embassy of China in Sri Lanka, Consulate-General of China in Mumbai,  Indonesia-China Friendship Association, Sri Lanka Armed Force and NCPA of India.
