Song of the String Orchestra is a combination you have never heard of , an orchestra based on the Chinese String Instrument. Since its establishment in 2011, the audience of all their performances returned sincere feedbacks abounded with praise. The audiences' genuine affections owes to the Song of the String Orchestra's belief and persistence of efforts in the aesthetics of music. Just as in all concerts, Song of the String Orchestra will continue to create, insist, and share the core values of the aesthetics of string music in this concert, and bring the audience the best harmonies of each and every string instruments. In addition to the exquisite compositions, each piece of music in this concert also demonstrates profound artistic contents such that you will not only hear the heavenly melodies but also the story-telling dramatic tensions performed with top rated, silky timbre. This is no wonder why they have been given genuine appraisal and admire appreciation by the audience. Together, the elaborated story-telling, layering, and rearranging of the musical structure are likewise a compelling strength of Song of the String Orchestra. The orchestra's pursuit for accuracies and concords of timbres and technique also manifested in their insistence of uniform instruments. Every single Huqin must be made by the same person--from material selection to the instrument's final adjustments; from the actual making to the trivial details of the accessaries. No doubt its audience has given the Song of the String Orchestra such admires and genuine appreciation!
