Musicians from opposite ends of the country enrich each other's classical traditions, Zhang Kun reports from Urumqi.

Two conductors stood on the podium, waving their batons at the same time. Such was the unusual sight upon the conclusion of the concert in celebration of the 60th birthday of Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps.

It took place during the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra's second visit to Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region. It also marks the beginning of more extensive communications between the music communities of Xinjiang and Shanghai.
