Peking University Visit to Scotland 5-12 September 2012

September will see a unique visit by a traditional Chinese orchestra from Peking University’s Chinese Music Institute to Edinburgh and to Scotland. 

The University of Edinburgh has a long standing relationship with Peking University which is manifest in various academic and research collaborations. This week long visit takes the relationship to a new level with collaborative working on a cultural and educational programme.

Coordinated by the Confucius Institute for Scotland, The Tapestry Partnership and the University of Edinburgh, over the course of the visit the Orchestra will visit schools in various local authorities, perform in Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Gardens, and give two concerts one of chamber music and one of Chinese orchestral music.
