The Fusion of the West and the East
We are the BC Philharmonic Society. It is a pleasure to participate in Culture Day 2021. Canada is a country that promotes multiculturalism. Different ethnic groups have their own distinctive music art and culture. We would appreciate and learn different music arts and cultures from each other in Canada, which is very fortunate and proud. Participating in Culture Day 2021 this time, we are introducing the characteristic music and melody of the Oriental Chinese musical instrument "Yueqin" and the Chinese minority "Yao nationality".
This event is free.
