Chinese vocalist Chen Junhua will hold a concert with the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra on Dec 20 at the Wiener Konzerthaus, one of the most prestigious music venues in Vienna.
Conducted by Shao En, the concert will also feature the Obala Koper Mixed Choir from Slovenia and Chinese tenor Fan Jingma as a guest performer.
Chen will perform a mixed program including symphonic vocal works, such as Farewell My Concubine, and more pop-like numbers, such as Canes around Trees. A highlight of the concert will be when Chen combines two patriotic songs, the Austrian Edelweiss and China's My Motherland and Me.
It will be the second time for Chen to perform in Vienna, after last year's Northern Shaanxi Folk Songs Concert at the Vienna Golden Hall.
