Major Event

New Spring Sino-Japan Culture Festival: Featuring the Harbin Symphony Orchestra


Harbin is noted as a city of skilled musicians, and the Harbin Symphony Orchestra was the first orchestra founded in China. Niigata invited the group for a performance. Compositions from Europe, China, and Japan were performed, in some cases incorporating traditional Chinese instruments like the Erhu and Pipa. Given the uniqueness of the fact that not only is it an Asian orchestra but it comes from our sister-city, Harbin, they seem to have been extremely well received.

  • 移 「草原小姐妹」 力強い琵琶の演奏を終えて

  • 終 アンコール後、会場からの盛大な拍手を受ける
