• Presented by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Culture and organized by the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra (GSO) and Xinghai Concert Hall, the Youth Music Culture Guangdong (YMCG) project is founded on the basis of Guangdong Province’s ongoing dedication in strengthening its artistic and educational assets, amassing resources from around the world. YMCG will take place annually.

  • Celebrated conductor and GSO Music Director Long Yu has been instrumental in inviting world-renowned artist Yo-Yo Ma to become YMCG’s Artistic Director, while preparations for YMCG have already garnered much interest from the community at large.

  • After nearly two years of planning, the inaugural YMCG has taken place in Guangzhou in January 2017. The second YMCG will take place during January 12-20, 2018. The main site for this project—Guangzhou’s Ersha Island—will transform itself into a full-time “cultural hotspot.”
