Chinese art and culture organization Poly Culture Group, in partnership with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, will bring the globally renowned China Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) to Vancouver's Chan Centre for the Performing Arts on November 30, 2016. The performance will commemorate the opening of Poly Culture Group's North American headquarter offices and flagship art gallery.
The historic performance will be led by award-winning conductor Long Yu, and will coincide with the grand opening of Poly Culture Group's North American headquarters, as well as the unveiling of Poly Culture North America's gallery, which will focus on Chinese art from antiquity to the modern day.
"The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will be Poly Culture's presenting partner for the China Philharmonic's performance at the Chan Centre, and will act as their promotional and ticketing ambassador. It is a testament to our belief that both cultural and symphonic music exchanges are an important part of a dynamic city," said Kelly Tweeddale, President of the VSO and VSO School of Music. "We stand ready to welcome Poly Culture and the CPO to Canada through the presentation of great classical music."
