Gu­langyu Con­cert Hall (Gu Lang Yu Yin Yue Ting 鼓浪屿音乐厅)

The pre­mier clas­si­cal mu­sic hall on Ku­lang­su, China’s pre­mier clas­si­cal mu­sic is­land, the Gu­langyu Con­cert Hall is proof that the best things in life are free. The di­verse clas­si­cal and tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese con­certs held here on many nights of the week—from vis­it­ing sym­pho­ny or­ches­tras to tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese mu­sic to world-class vis­it­ing soloists—are all of­fered to the pub­lic with­out charge, gifts from the is­land to its lo­cal res­i­dents and vis­i­tors. If you have the chance to catch a Jing & Stu­dents con­cert (fea­tur­ing fa­mous vi­o­list Jing Yang per­form­ing with her top stu­dents, rang­ing in age from 5 to 20), don’t miss it.

The Gu­langyu Con­cert Hall is most beau­ti­ful as seen from with­in its sleek, mod­ern 600-seat in­te­ri­or, where views and acoustics are great from all seats and the long strips of slat­ted wood glow with a red­dish hue. The con­cert hall was built in 1987 and ren­o­vat­ed in 2002. An­oth­er ma­jor ren­o­va­tion will take place in Sep­tem­ber 2017.

Gulangyu Concert Hall (Gu Lang Yu Yin Yue Ting 鼓浪屿音乐厅)Free night­ly con­certs (usu­al­ly tak­ing place around 7:30pm), most of them acoustic, will restart in Oc­to­ber 2017. The pro­gram will range from vis­it­ing sym­pho­ny or­ches­tras to tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese mu­sic to Jing & Stu­dents (with famed lo­cal vi­o­list Jing Yang and a ro­tat­ing en­sem­ble of her top vi­o­lin and vi­o­la stu­dents, rang­ing in age from 5 to 20, plus a few oth­er sur­pris­es). You can check the sched­ule on the bill­board to the left of the largest stair­way lead­ing up to the con­cert hall.

Af­ter the Sep­tem­ber ren­o­va­tion, the con­cert hall will re­open in Oc­to­ber 2017 with a re-de­signed lob­by and new­ly re­vamped con­cert pro­gram that is still to be an­nounced.
