The performance, which was part of the “Joyful Chinese New Year” celebration dedicated by the Chinese Ministry of Culture to showcase traditional Chinese music, was performed by one of the best known Chinese Orchestras. The orchestra was conducted by world renowned conductor and composer Mr. Kuan Naichung as well as Mr Dong Junjie, with leading musicians such as Ms Yu Hongmei (recipient of a Pro Musics International Award for playing traditional Erhu) and over 60 other award winning musicians playing various traditional Chinese instruments.

Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster, commented: “The concert provided a wonderful setting for the finale of the Joyful Spring Festival. I am extremely proud of the hard work the team have put into creating such a memorable event. We are looking forward to hosting more events like this during 2016 as we build strong relationships with a number of Chinese organisations.”

Dr. Wu, CEO of CBN Travel & MICE, the event organiser, said: “We recommended Central Hall Westminster after an impressive performance with the China Conservatory Orchestra in the venue last August. Other Chinese events hosted at Central Hall included the China-UK Business Forum during the official visit of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to the UK. It is a very versatile venue, ideal for a variety of events from business meetings to large concerts.”
