Summer concert is set for stadium

CHINESE mainland folk singer Song Zuying, whose work was nominated for the Best Classical Crossover Album at the 49th Grammy Awards, is preparing for a performance with Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou at the Beijing National Stadium, or Bird's Nest, in June.

Their performance will be part of the first "Bird's Nest Summer Concert" in Beijing, which will kick off on June 30.

"The crossover between classical, pop and Chinese folk music will be the essential feature for this concert," said Xu Peidong, vice president of the Chinese Musicians Association, on Saturday.

Song, who has held solo concerts at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the Golden Hall in Vienna, Austria, and the Kennedy Center in Washington in the United States, said she would do more exercises to prepare for the upcoming performance and practise her vocal skills.

Chou believed the concert would be "more amazing" than his previous solo gigs.

The association said the two singers will perform each other's hit works.
