About the orchestra
Founded in 1952, the Shanghai Chinese Orchestra (SHCO) was China’s first big-scale modern Chinese orchestra. The SHCO is famous for its harmonious cooperation among the members of the orchestra and its excellent mastering of all kinds of works, profoundly progressing and developing over the years. Famous musicians are part of the orchestra and its repertoire is incredibly varied.
The SHCO has toured all around China and in dozens of countries in the world, often performing for visiting presidents and foreign government officials in China. After being invited to major national and international activities, such as the ASEAN Summit, the 2007 Special Olympics and the 2010 Shanghai EXPO Week, the SHCO has received outstanding praise.
