More than 100 classical music fans attended a concert this week which took place to promote Chinese culture and art.

The ‘Heritage’ concert took place last night at the University of Sheffield’s Firth Hall for residents in Sheffield.

Joining forces with the Confucius Institute and Wanlin Academy of Dance and Performing Arts, Chinese students from the University of Sheffield presented the beauty of Chinese art with traditional dancing, singings and instruments performances.

According to organiser Yan Qin, the show’s aim was to offer more opportunities for people to learn about Chinese culture and art.

“Music has no borders,” she added.

The pre-show provided by the Confucius Institute included activities showcasing Chinese Calligraphy, tea ceremony and Guzheng performance, a long-established instrument from China.

“It has been a wonderful exploration of Chinese culture,” said Matthew Byrne from the marketing and events officer.
