Promoting Music through Cross-cultural Collaboration
Joining Behind the Scenes program was definitely one of the most wonderful and exciting experiences in my music journey. Although I am not new to classical music, I never knew how successful concerts could be held before I joined the program. It offered me the opportunity to have an insight into an international music festival. It also shed thought-provoking light on me that an excellent performance by musicians is undoubtedly important. Yet, the endeavor by the arts administrators is also indispensable.
