CHINA-FRANCE CUL­TURAL EX­CHANGES

Beijing (English) - - INFO -

From Oc­to­ber 24 to Novem­ber 3, the Na­tional Orches­tra of France led by Em­manuel Kriv­ine toured a se­ries of cities in China. Ra­dio France and the In­sti­tute of France took this op­por­tu­nity to an­nounce the es­tab­lish­ment of a friend­ship as­so­ci­a­tion for China-french cul­tural ex­change. The as­so­ci­a­tion will work with the Hong Kong-based Jonathan KS Choi Foun­da­tion to pro­mote ex­changes be­tween the two coun­tries.

On Oc­to­ber 15, Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager of Ra­dio France Sibyle Veil, Tenured Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the In­sti­tute of France Xavier Dar­cos and Con­sul­tant and Le­gal Direc­tor of Sun Wah Group Lim­ited and Vice Chair­man of the Jonathan KS Choi Foun­da­tion Jan­ice Wing Kum Kwan en­tered into a co­op­er­a­tive agree­ment to pro­mote art ex­change projects in Paris through the China-french Cul­tural Ex­change Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion. On Oc­to­ber 26, Am­bas­sador of the French Repub­lic to China Jean-mau­rice Ripert an­nounced the es­tab­lish­ment of the as­so­ci­a­tion.

As a ma­jor cul­tural en­ter­prise in France, Ra­dio France has a num­ber of or­ches­tras, a large con­cert hall, nu­mer­ous record­ing stu­dios and ra­dio chan­nels. The sta­tion hopes to strengthen cul­tural ex­change and co­op­er­a­tion with China. Ra­dio France has reg­u­larly in­vited well-known Chi­nese mu­si­cians to co­op­er­ate with its or­ches­tras. Ad­di­tion­ally, its or­ches­tras have had reg­u­lar tours across China.

The 2018 China tour of the Na­tional Orches­tra of France was a start­ing point for new China-france art di­a­logue. This di­a­logue will or­gan­ise reg­u­lar tours, pro­vide cus­tomised prod­ucts and cre­ative works, and pro­mote orches­tra con­duc­tors and mu­si­cians and orches­tra for art ex­changes. Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager of the Ra­dio France Sibyle Veil stated: “I hope to build a last­ing part­ner­ship with China and en­able Ra­dio France’s or­ches­tras to per­form reg­u­larly in China through this re­la­tion­ship. I hope to use this strong co­op­er­a­tive re­la­tion­ship be­tween our mu­si­cians, com­posers and mu­si­cal her­itage to pro­mote the spread of the Na­tional Orches­tra of France, which is the best the French sym­phony, in China.” Xavier Dar­cos and Jan­ice Wing Kum Kwan ex­pressed sim­i­lar views.
