Tonight: Chu Yibing and the China Cello Philharmonic Orchestra

Tonight at 7.30pm - 50RMB, 40RMB (Member or with the new issue of Time Out Magazine)

Beijing native Chu Yibing began playing cello at seven, studied in Paris at 17, and became the principal cellist of the Basel Symphony Orchestra, but it wasn’t until he began conducting that he started loving music – at age 35! As head of Central Conservatory of Music’s Cello Department, he leads China’s first and only permanent chamber ensemble, the China Cello Philharmonic. Besides regular international touring, they have played for Chinese President Hu Jin Tao and US President Barack Obama; this month their Sunday Salon programme includes Gounod, Offenbach, and Bizet.
