Tune in to outdoor orchestra 3D sound

Hongkou District yesterday held an outdoor symphony orchestra concert on the North Bund, as part of its efforts to make the area along the Huangpu River an art hub.

The district government used cutting-edge three-dimensional sound amplifying technology to enable residents to hear the musicians clearly outdoors, said Chen Guangxian, president of Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.

“The technology will become a revolution to symphony orchestras, letting the noble art be enjoyed by more residents,” he said.

The orchestra performed a rehearsal for residents in the morning before striking up for the official show in the evening along the river.

Audiences could enjoy a double treat, listening to the music while enjoying the view of the Bund.

Concerts will be held frequently and will be free, a North Bund area official said.

The outdoor performances are part of Hongkou’s plan to create Shanghai Music Valley — providing a space for live performances and attracting musicians, record labels and artists.

The area will include a 280,000-square-meter historic preservation zone, featuring the city’s biggest area of traditional shikumen housing.
