A special event Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II, featuring Symphony Silicon Valley and some of China's greatest artists comes to the Flint Center in Cupertino to perform Xian Xinghai's immortal choral masterwork for one night only!
The Yellow River Cantata by Xian Xinghai is the first multi-movement Chinese choral composition to gain widespread reorganization outside of China and enjoys lasting popularity. Composed in early 1939 during Japan’s invasion of China, the Yellow River Cantata expresses the Chinese people’s strong will to defeat Japan and deep desire to bring China to great freedom and prosperities.
This concert will be performed by 300 singers from local choruses, a full orchestra with Chinese instruments from Symphony Silicon Valley, and top soloists from China. It is directed by Ding Cao, one of the top conductors in China, and highlights soloist Changyong Liao, the best baritone in China and the winner of many international competitions.
This concert, a joint effort of local Chinese community, commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Victory in World War II, of the Victory in the Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, and of the Founding of United Nations.
