Year of the Tiger in Concert is an evening of orchestral music to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year.

Out of the concern of public health and the evolving COVID-19 situation, the concert will now be presented via livestream with 2 options: free of charge or premium digital concert hall (ad-free).

Together with Willoughby Symphony Orchestra and the selected popular Australian Chinese soloists, this all-star cast brings you remarkable and immersive live music experience of authentic classics. The concert features two immensely acclaimed Chinese classics Spring Festival Suite and Tune of Meihu, rarely performed live on Australian stages and launching its Australian premiere.

Emerging Chinese-Australian conductor Shilong Ye, a recipient of ‘Alan Bellhouse Award for a Young Conductor’, will lead this concert. Guest artists include award winning pianist Tony Lee, leading Erhu player Tuqiang Zhang, popular soprano Lei Du, and young Australian mezzo-soprano Nicole Mealey who is a featured Young Artist with Pacific Opera. The artists will be joined by the extraordinary Willoughby Symphony, an exceptional orchestra of international standard.

A joyful exuberant piece, Spring Festival Suite, composed by Huanzhi Li, depicting the scene that folks in Shanbei region were celebrating the Chinese New Year, will highlight the concert with its grand returns with perfect festival ambience to the audiences. The popular Chinese folk song Tune of Meihu, a masterpiece of the well-established Qin Erhu originated from yellow river civilisation, will cheer up the community with the high spirits and unwavering conviction conveyed from this folk song.
