Orchestra plays on the Great Wall


In the spring school holidays, the students of the Knox Symphony Orchestra toured China where they performed in locations including on the Great Wall.  

The boys were treated like orchestra rock royalty throughout the tour. 

Highlights of the trip included performances at Ju Yong Pass on the Great Wall, Tianjin Concert Hall and Xi’an Conservatory of Music. The boys also visited tourist sites in Beijing and saw the Terracotta Warriors at Xi'an. 

The organisation of the tour was a complex logistical operation, with more than 700kg of instruments to be transported across the country.
