Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra
Music Director: Yu Long
Since its founding in 1957, the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra (GSO) is the first and only Chinese symphony orchestra to have toured and performed on five continents, receiving acclaim as “one of China’s most prestigious music ensembles” (China Daily) and “China’s nexus of musical tradition and innovation” (Financial Times of London). Maestro Yu Long, Music Director since 2003, is a preeminent Chinese conductor with international renown. He is currently Vice President of the China Musicians Association and Chairman of its recently established League of China Orchestras.
The GSO is also one of the first orchestras in China to institute a professional concert season. The 2021/2022 season marks the GSO’s 25th season. The GSO has sustained long-term relationships with numerous renowned musicians at home and abroad, performing diverse repertoires ranging from Baroque to modern.
Beginning in 2000, the GSO was sent on numerous tours by the Ministry of Culture and the Guangdong Provincial Government, performing at internationally renowned venues all over the world. In 2006, the GSO was invited to perform in both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 15th Asian Games in Doha, Qatar. The orchestra has also appeared more than 20 times at the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Macao Arts Festival and Macao International Music Festival. In October 2012, the GSO made its Taiwan debut. In 2017, the GSO made its sixth European tour, visiting London, Manchester and Birmingham on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United Kingdom, where it was headlined in The Guardian as a “highly accomplished band.” In January 2019, the GSO was invited to take part in the “Winter in Tantora” Festival, becoming the first Chinese orchestra to perform in Saudi Arabia. Later that month, the GSO embarked on its seventh European tour. The orchestra not only fulfills its role as a cultural ambassador abroad, but also promotes meaningful exchange within the Pearl River Delta region and across the Taiwan Straits.
The GSO has also diversified its mission and programs in the past decade. Between 2005 and 2007, the orchestra organized the Canton International Summer Music Academy with Maestro Charles Dutoit as Music Director, inviting such distinguished artists as Martha Argerich, Gary Graffman and Claus Peter Flor as well as more than 20 principals from world-renowned orchestras as tutors. The GSO hosted the Canton Asian Music Festival, held at the Xinghai Concert Hall, in November 2010 on the occasion of the 16th Asian Games. The GSO has also collaborated with the world’s leading ballet and opera companies, appearing both in the pit and in concert renditions. The orchestra regularly commissions new works from prominent composers in China and abroad, fostering China’s development in symphonic music. In December 2011, the GSO established its affiliate youth orchestra, later renamed the Guangzhou Symphony Youth Orchestra (August 2016), the first amateur youth orchestra administered by a professional orchestra in China. In January 2017, with GSO Music Director Yu Long leading its Artistic Committee and Yo-Yo Ma as Artistic Director, Youth Music Culture Guangdong (YMCG) was launched, immediately garnering acclaim for “opening a new page in the Chinese symphonic world.” YMCG is scheduled to be an annual event.
The GSO moved its headquarters to Ersha Island along the Pearl River in 2009. This new facility has provided the orchestra with superb amenities and the means to advance both artistically and institutionally. While adhering to its own heritage, the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra continues to forge ahead, always keeping pace with the times.

Conductor: Li Haiying 
Li Haiying, one of the most beloved and sought-after Chinese composers, has made an ineffaceable mark on the Chinese music scene with a diverse repertoire that spans the boundaries of classical music, popular music, TV series soundtracks and Chinese traditional music.
Li’s works in the popular realm have profoundly influenced generations of the Chinese public. Having created much relished pieces such as “A Crescent Moon”, “Song of the Seven Sons” and “Crossing the River, Li is renowned for his keen ability to capture the hearts and imaginations of the audience. His works have garnered numerous national and international accolades, including the WIPO Medal for Creativity 2015, Wenhua Prize and “Five-Ones” Project Award.
Among his warmly received personal concerts are A Crescent Moon - the Concert of Li Haiying’s Works at Beijing Capital Gymnasium in 1994, The Concert of Li Haiying’s TV Series Soundtracks held by CCTV in 2001, and The Extravaganza of Li Haiying’s Works at Guangzhou Gymnasium in 2008. 
As the Dean of School of Modern Music - Xinghai Conservatory of Music, Vice Chairman of The Music Copyright Society of China (MCSC), Vice Chairman of The China Recording Association, Vice Chairman of The China Film Music Institute, Vice Chairman of The Pop Music Institute of China Musicians Association, Director of The China Musicians Association, Li has made considerable contributions to today’s Chinese culture. He was the music director of the Spring Festival Gala Evening in 1989, 1997, and 1998 (the most important cultural show in China), the 5th Nanning International Folk Song Arts Festival in 2003, the Opening and Closing Ceremony of 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou 2010, the Documentary Symphony Concert of Amazing China held by CCTV and the National Centre for Performing Arts in 2013 and 2014, and the Night of Fortune - Grammy Superstars Concert in Chengdu, 2013. Li has also been a jury member of many competitions such as The National Young Singers Grand Prix, The 10th Romanian Golden Stag Festival, The 10th Voice of Asia held in Alma-Ata Kazakhstan, and The International Gifted Children’s Art Festival in Louisiana, US.
Three decades of experience deeply rooted in popular music did not content him with the legacy of popular admiration; instead, he continued inspiring the future. He has transcended stylistic and artistic boundaries while fusing the artistry of classical music and elements of Chinese traditional music with the accessibility of popular music. The result was a distinctive sound in the Chinese music scene. His concert pieces are not only appealing to the music scholars but also to the public as they always keep abreast with the time and create exceedingly powerful musical experiences for the audience. 
In recent years, Li has concentrated on composing orchestral music. As a composer/conductor, he has worked and developed a rapport with a number of distinguished orchestras including the China Philharmonic Orchestra, Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, Zhejiang Symphony Orchestra, Kunming Nie Er Symphony Orchestra, Guiyang Symphony Orchestra, Qingdao Symphony Orchestra, Fujian Symphony Orchestra and Baotou Symphony Orchestra, etc. In the past few years, Li has worked with Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra many times, presenting four different repertoires of popular-classical symphonies composed by himself.
On Nov.12, 2016, Li’s “Grand Symphonic Epic - Our Sun Yat-Sen” was premiered and conducted by the composer himself at the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall (Guangzhou). Highly appraised by the public, the piece was performed not only in the hometown of Sun Yat-Sen, but also at the NCPA (Beijing) and Xinghai Concert Hall (Guangzhou). 
On Oct. 30, 2019, Li's “Oratorio - Praise to The Sixth Patriarch”, was premiered and conducted by himself at the Zhuhai Grand Theatre. The performance by China Philharmonic Orchestra, Lanzhou Concert Hall Choir, Shen Yang, Han Peng, Zhu Huiling and Li Jingjing, made its world debut at the 22nd China-Korea-Japan Buddhist Friendship Exchange Conference.
On November 7 and 8, 2020, Li's original musical work “Youth Troupe” was successfully premiered at the Guangzhou Grand Theatre. On December 1, 2020, Li Haiying's Symphony No.1 “Pearl River” was premiered by Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra under Yu Long's baton at the Xinghai Concert Hall in Guangzhou.
