The Concept

Suitable for orchestra, band, and choir groups, this 9-day program includes 3 public performances at some of China’s most iconic concert venues. The planning and detail is expertly handled by our experienced team including equipment hire, transport, and rehearsal time at each venue. A trip of a lifetime for all aspiring musical performers.

Students will perform in front of music loving Chinese locals in each town. G.E.T Educational Tours and our travel partners coordinate the selling of tickets to each performance, and students will perform in world-class concert venues in front of large crowds.

Teachers, please note that there is a significant amount of paperwork and pre-tour organisation to prepare for. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 12 months planning period to allow time for completion of documents and other Chinese Government requirement. Please contact us for more information.


Feature performance locations include:

  • National Centre of Performing Arts Beijing (NCPA)
  • Wuzhen Water Town 
  • Forbidden City Concert Hall
  • Oriental Arts Centre Shanghai
