With the theme of "Paying Tribute to Chinese Traditional Culture", a cultural festival organized by Aidi International School, a leader in international education in China, took place at the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing on June 12.

The festival consisted of three parts: the summer music concert Global Citizens with a Chinese Identity, the cultural salon National Treasure Keeper, and the art exhibition Face of China.

According to Lydia Liu, founder of the Aidi International School, the brilliant performances and works of art from students are the epitome of their careful studies in Chinese culture and world culture.

"For Chinese international students, learning about Chinese culture can help them establish their own cultural identity, while world cultural studies can broaden their horizons."

During the 100-minute summer music concert, a variety of programs featuring music, dance, choir and opera were presented, offering audiences a visual feast from the very beginning to the end.

For instance, Chinese author, playwright and singer Wu Shuang, together with several primary school students, performed the melodrama My Stage, the climax of the concert.

"Those things belonging to a nation should be shared with the world," said Wu. "As I have lived in foreign countries for more than 10 years, I deeply understand the importance of mixing Eastern civilization with the West." She shared her hope that more and more children can act as a bridge between different cultures.
