A Gala Concert to celebrate THE CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE DOG WITH THE PHILHARMONIA
THURSDAY 1 MARCH 2018
As you know, through my Foundation, I have been working hard over the last ten years to promote the importance of our ties with China. These days it seems more relevant than ever as we move into new and interesting times!
As a result our Chinese New Year celebration, now in the third year of our partnership with the Philharmonia Orchestra, and with the continued and wonderful support of Bruno Wang through his Pureland Foundation, is fast becoming one of the most important cultural events here in London. I would dearly like to invite you to come and support us at this special concert on Thursday the 1“ March 2018 where we will celebrate the Year of the Dog!
The evening will feature the extraordinary Xiaoshuijing Farmers’ Choir who we are bringing to Europe for the very ﬁrst time. Made up of local farmers from the remote village of Xiaoshuijing in China’s Yunnan Province and wearing traditional Miao ethnic costume, they will provide a fascinating glimpse into their amazing cultural world. We will also be joined by the outstanding young Chinese pianist Serena Wang who will perform Mendelssohn’s youthful Piano Concerto No. 1.
I do hope you can join us along with many of our dear friends from the arts, and business. and we are also honoured that the Chinese Ambassador will attend.
With best wishes for a Happy New Year, and we hope you can join me in the continuing success of this event on 1″ March for what promises to be a joyous celebration of the Chinese New Year of the Dog!
Lady Linda Wong Davies
