The Beijing Symphony Orchestra makes its Washington-area debut at Strathmore, led by maestro Tan Li Huan on 10/20.
Highlights of the performance will include two large works by Chinese composer Guo Wenjing, known for his brilliant interleaving of Chinese and Western instruments in film, operatic, and symphonic works. The Lotus Overture, written in honor of the London 2012 Olympic Games, has received international media attention with its gesture of goodwill, serving to pass the Olympic torch from Beijing to London. The orchestra will also feature Guo Wenjing's Chou Kong Shan (Desolate Mountain), a concerto for bamboo flutes and orchestra and Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet ballet suites.
Event begins at 7:00PM
