The Chinese Music Culture Online International Summer Camp hosted an online performance on Dec 8, marking the completion of its online studies and exchanges over a span of three months.
Hosted jointly by the Central Conservatory of Music and the Center for Language Education and Cooperation, this year's program, entitled "Chinese Bridge Global Music", featured online courses in Chinese music and culture, a talent competition and online showcases by students.
This was the fifth edition of the summer camp, which in the past has invited 217 teachers and students in music to China. This year for the first time, the summer camp was hosted entirely online.
For the online showcase, approximately 100 music practitioners from 21 countries performed songs, including We by Li Xiaobing, professor at the Central Conservatory of Music, who rearranged the composition for Chinese traditional instruments.
"For this version of We, musicians from different countries and ethnicities expressed their shared feelings, their sentiments for life, love and the shared destiny of mankind," Li said.
