Cloud concert celebrates close ties between Shanghai and Wuhan

A cloud concert, which was co-presented by Shanghai Media Group’s classical music radio FM94.7 and Hubei Media Group’s Music Radio on Thursday, now can be accessed for free on FM94.7’s WeChat account and the AJMIDE smartphone app.

Shanghai and Wuhan have established a close connection and friendship since medical teams from Shanghai were sent to Wuhan to fight COVID-19.

The concert was rooted in a touching photo taken by a 21-year-old medical volunteer during the pandemic.

In the photo, 88-year-old patient Wang Xin, a violinist with the Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra, and his doctor Liu Kai from Shanghai’s Zhongshan Hospital, stand together in front of a beautiful sunset. With the help and encouragement of Shanghai medics, Wang recovered from the virus. He performed Jules Massenet’s “Meditation” in the ward as a gift to all of them.

The cloud concert featured a new adaptation of the classic song “Dedication,” which was performed in a chorus comprised of people from both cities.
