font size    

China National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) Saturday held a concert at Beijing Concert Hall, in the center of this national capital, to celebrate its 50th founding anniversary.

Li Changchun, member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, was among the 1,000 audience to attend the concert. Leading officials Liu Yunshan and Chen Zhili were also watching.

At the concert, Chinese artists performed Chinese songs and orchestral works, and at the end, the triumphant Beethoven Symphonien No.9 Choral.

CNSO was found in 1956 when it was known as Central Symphony Orchestra. In 1996, the orchestra got its present name.

Over the past five decades, CNSO has composed or performed a large number of foreign and Chinese classics and modern works.
