Today's concert highlights Lingnan (Cantonese) history and culture, customs and legends, and regional characteristics. Its second and third chapters feature multimedia design, traditional folk music, dances, and poem praise in Cantonese to create a rich and immersive Lingnan-styled atmosphere.

A grand national symphony suite, Bougainvillea and Golden Lotus, debuts Oct 29 at the National Center for the Performing Arts. The suite pays tribute to the 22nd anniversary of Macao's return to the motherland and establishment of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin. It relates the development of Zhuhai and Macao's from poverty in modern times to prosperity and highlights the mutually beneficial and interdependent relationship between two regions. 

Zhuhai National Orchestra will also stage a concert of classic works by renowned musician He Zhanhao at Peking University Centennial Memorial Hall on Oct 24.

A hundred performers entertained passengers Oct 18 with a flash mob (a group choreographed but unannounced performance) on an airliner designed to promote Zhuhai as a City of Youth. The 25-minute ensemble of traditional instruments played "A Song to Tough Guys," "My Motherland and Me," and other popular music en route to Beijing Daxing International Airport.
