May 8-9, 2021 – Broadway Theatre
As part of the Foundation’s sponsorship of the Macao’s Chinese Orchestra’s concert “Dialogue Between the East and the West” at the 31st Macao Arts Festival on May 9, 2021, the Foundation's "GEG Chinese Music Promotion Scheme" invited local students to a rare “behind-the-scenes” experience with the orchestra.
Over 200 students from 7 local Chinese school orchestras were invited to attend a rehearsal session the day before the actual concert. Both students and teachers treasured the unique experience of exploring how a professional orchestra rehearsed and prepared for a concert.
With Chinese music being an important part of Chinese culture, it is the Foundation’s wish that Chinese Music can be cultivated and popularized, especially amongst young people in Macau.
