Chinese orchestra light’s up the stage
As 2015 is the year of China in South Africa, the SA-China People’s Friendship Association Troupen and SA Chinese Language Education Foundation saw it fit to bring the Shanghai Yangpu Children’s Palace Student’s Art Troupe to the country and brace us with their symphonic melodies.
The event, which was held at Wits University’s Great Hall on Thursday, was graced with the presence of Dr Sucra who said that “we have much to learn from China.”
He also spoke about cultural exchange and joked about South Africans loving Chinese food and said all that was means of us coming together and uniting.
They also added Folk Ensemble Dabo River Caprice with Zang Yuecheng on the trumpet.
Dance Troup of Shanghai Yangpu Children’s Palace also graced the stage with their dance performance which made the crowd laugh and becoming livelier.
The event also saw members of the Chinese Embassy in the Johannesburg office, members of the Department of Basic Education and members of the Department of Education. Chinese CPF Chairman Mr Wu Shaokang was also present.
