From the Great Wall winding its way across the north, to the Forbidden City in the heart of Beijing, to Hong Kong’s skyscraper-laden skyline, the world’s most populous country boasts both thousands of years of history and an indisputably global outlook. The surge in popularity of European choral and orchestral music has produced a number of world-class ensembles and concert halls as well as a large audience base who appreciate the classics as well as modern twists on the traditional.

Classical Movements has been planning tours to China since 1995. Past clients who have traveled to China include the National Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Morgan State University Choir, Pacific Boychoir, Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale, Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and San Francisco Girls Chorus to name only a few.

Thank you for all your efforts to put together our China tour. Both the musical and non-musical arrangements were truly exceptional as always. The concert halls were some of the best places we’ve ever performed, a testament not just to your work, but to the efforts of people in China who have made efforts get world-class concert halls built there. Impressive. We look forward to the next tour with Classical Movements.

-Kevin Fox, Artistic Director [The Pacific Boychoir]

Thank you for Classical Movements’ attention to making this tour so very memorable. I cannot imagine seeing as much of China as we did in such a short amount of time. All the concerts were well-received but most importantly the interaction between the guides and the group was unprecedented. We could not have asked for a better local fit for the group.

-Dr. Eric Conway, Choir Director & Chairperson of Fine Arts [Morgan State University]

For starters I would like to thank you and everyone at Classical Movements for the wonderful work you did on behalf of the VSO. The compliments continue to flow in on how smoothly everything went. To say we couldn’t have done it without you would be the understatement of the year! … To be the first professional Canadian symphony orchestra to perform in China since 1978 was a great honour.

-Jeff Alexander, President and CEO [Vancouver Symphony Orchestra]
