The Venetian Macao is set to present “Tan Dun Rock Symphony New Year’s Concert” tonight at the Venetian Theatre. The performance will feature composer and conductor Tan Dun who will lead the Macao Orchestra, Mongolian folk-rock band Hanggai, and other celebrated musicians.

Also appearing are four musicians including violinist Jue Yao from Hong Kong, cellist Zhu Lin from Shanghai, pianist Ralph van Raat from Holland, and soprano Maria-Chiara Chizzoni from Italy.

Completed by Mongolian folk-rock legends Hanggai – considered a Chinese representative of world music – the programme will combine established classical pieces, Hanggai original compositions, and Tan’s own works, some of which require audience participation through the use of mobile phones.
