Officials from related SIP departments, representatives of returned overseas Chinese as well as university students and faculties were present.
In order to help the audiences acquire a better understanding of choral music, Li Chong, chairman of Suzhou Chorus Association and associate professor at the Music Department of Suzhou Vocational University, conducted a professional choir to demonstrate how a song is performed by an ensemble of singers. Then he led the audiences to sing a song together.
Following that, three choirs respectively from SU, ICBC (Industry and Commerce Bank of China) and SIP staged a variety of Chinese and western classical and popular songs, winning warm applause for their superb singing skills and passionate performances.
The concert wound up with the song Unforgettable Tonight jointly performed by the three choirs.
