Chorale Concerts: Shenzhen Serendipity

Two choirs from different sides of the strait will gather in Shenzhen, to celebrate the chorale music that has overwhelmed the East and the West. Programs for three concerts in a row include folk songs from the hometown of both choirs, a selection from the bel-canto and Lieder repertoire, newly composed songs for classical Chinese literature as well as classic pop songs.
