China Broadcasting Chinese Orchestra presents Enchanting China: An Orchestral Extravaganza, for just two performances in Vancouver at the end of this month. This traditional Chinese orchestra arrives with more than 70 musicians, and will be joined by singers and dancers in vibrant and exquisite costumery, making this sweeping orchestral extravaganza a true feast for the senses.

The program will showcase an eclectic array of vocal songs, featuring soloists from China, as well as local voices and great instrumental works from across the history of Chinese music. Audiences will also be treated to traditional Chinese dance and a taste of Kunqu Opera – one of the country’s oldest extant forms – with excerpts from The Peony Pavilion.

Enchanting China: An Orchestral Extravaganza

Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre (600 Block Hamilton St, Vancouver)
When: November 29th & 30th, 2016 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Starting at $28 (plus fees, taxes). Available online now or by calling 1-855-985-2787.

More than 70 musicians including masters of the Sheng (free-reed bamboo pipe), Pipa (four-stringed lute), Erhu (spike fiddle), and many more fascinating authentic instruments will be featured.

Direct from Beijing, the orchestra will be joined by singer Gong Linna, a major artist in Asia and Europe who has been described as ‘China’s Bjork’. Combining traditional and modern vocal techniques, Gong Linna has developed a wholly unique signature style. The concert will mark her first-ever performance in Canada.
