The Forbidden City Concert Hall vs Zhongshan Park (Beijing Kids, February, 2012)
It had been years since I attended a show with a live symphony orchestra – even longer since I listened to a decent choral performance. So when we had a chance to attend the International Schools Choral Music Society (ISCMS) gala concert, the whole family decided it was a good idea. We wanted to see the over 400 musicians and singers on stage, but I was equally curious about what kind of music hall sits within the confines of the former imperial garden where the Emperor used to relax, the beautiful Zhongshan Park. It is the kind of place I had been meaning to explore and finally we would get to do so at night.
