About 2018 Edinburgh Official Chinese New Year Concert

“犬守八方平安日,梅开四海如意春”,普天同庆,喜迎戊狗,备受瞩目的二零一八爱丁堡新年音乐会一路踏春而来,如约而至。

它是一座桥梁,更是一个广场,让歌剧与民歌,交响乐与古筝,这些东西方最璀璨的艺术形式贴近交流,热情碰撞,魅力四射。它是一扇窗口,也是一条纽带,用动情的歌舞关照着时时思乡情浓的海外游子,用优美的旋律拉近着神往东方风情的当地居民。

2017年春节的新年音乐会一经亮相,引发各方好评如潮,

此次2018新年音乐会在规模上更上层楼,云集了阵容更强大的中国青年艺术家们——他们代表了中国传统国乐演奏家、美声歌唱家等最顶尖的演出水准,更有本地艺术团体的倾情参与——爱丁堡交响乐团……

专业的素养,高端的配置,用心的编排,精心的准备,这场中西合璧的音乐会,将为历史文化名城爱丁堡,呈现一份盛大的中国农历新年贺礼,也将为观众带来一个难忘的美好夜晚。

May the Year of the Dog bring you and your family happiness, joy and prosperity. Let the beauty and charm of the plum blossom spread the festive mood of our celebration!

Following the amazing success of the 2017 Chinese New Year Concert, the Asian Association of Culture, Commerce and Education in Europe is delighted to present the much-anticipated 2018 Chinese New Year Concert.

Dogs, the eleventh sign of the Chinese zodiac, symbolizes loyalty and honesty. To welcome the Year of the Dog and ensure a memorable evening, a line-up of outstanding performers has been organized and includes the winner of Riccardo Zamboni 2010 award, the tenor Han Peng, as well as soprano Lili Zhao, Guzheng virtuoso recording artist Chen Yehui, and 2014 BBC Young Musician wind instrument finalist, British-Chinese flautist Daniel Shao, with the Edinburgh Symphony Orchestra. These are but some of the extraordinary highlights that will ensure a night to remember.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 2018 Edinburgh Official Chinese New Year Concert are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
