Adding yet another layer of virtuosity, the evening shall embrace the melodic mastery of Sydney's celebrated erhu virtuoso Zhang Tuqiang, presenting the evocative sounds of the Qin-style erhu. And the legendary sounds of Hu Weigang's suona shall channel the ancestral echoes of the "Song of a Hundred Birds." 🎻🎼

The Sydney Chinese Orchestra (SCO), a dynamic ensemble sculpted by a synergy of tradition and cross-cultural passion, has admirably elevated the bar of Chinese musical prowess within the vibrant tapestry of Sydney. Emboldened by SCO's innovation, transcending mere reinterpretation, these virtuosos have etched their legacy in the sonic chronicles of the city. 🌏🎼
