THE World Expo is filled with music, both on site and around the city, and one new audio-visual show features performances by more than 30 famous university groups.

The Shanghai World Music Festival is a large-scale, interactive music show involving more than 2,000 musicians from schools and groups such as Harvard and Yale universities, Northam Orchestra (Western Australia), the Sydney Conservatory of Music and London's Imperial College.

Through July 17, university singers will perform popular songs with diverse musical elements at the Gubei Community in Changning District and the Knowledge and Innovation Community in Yangpu District. They will also perform at the Expo Park.

The festival is co-organized by the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination and Fudan University.

Performances were held at Xintiandi, the fashion, dining and tourist hub, for three days, concluding last night.

The famous Wiffenpoofs of Yale, male a cappella singers, opened the program with the traditional Slovak wedding song "Ej Lucka, Lucka Siroka." The 14 singers performed it with American musical features and soothing accompaniment.

The Krokodiloes from Harvard University performed eight a cappella songs and Northam Orchestra concluded the show.
