Jing Huan again leads the seasoned players of the GSO along with the young aspiring musicians of the GSYO in celebrating Children’s Day with a rendition of the magnificent Pines of Rome. Respighi, known for his gorgeous orchestral colors, provided descriptive titles for the work’s four movements, each distinguished by contrasting themes and apt musical depictions of beautiful landscapes. This performance also includes projections of children’s paintings, along with live interaction between performers and audience to enhance everyone’s artistic experience.
