A Canada-themed concert associated with the 16th "Meet in Beijing" Arts Festival will be held at the National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) on Monday.

The Qingdao Symphony Orchestra will perform, under the baton of Chinese conductor Zhang Guoyong on April 25, 2016.

Other scheduled performers of the concert include the Buzz Brass Quintet, Ottawa Bach Choir, Ensemble Caprice Baroque Orchestra, soprano Mary Catherine Wright and dancers from the GOH Ballet Academy.

"The festival will provide a platform for artists from different countries to communicate and promote friendship," said Zhang, who is the concert’s art director.

With Canada as the country honored this year, more than 100 Canadian artists will visit China to join in the festival. Mark Rowswell, a well-known Canadian scholar and host, better known as "Dashan" in China, will serve as the image ambassador of this year's "Meet in Beijing" Arts Festival.

The festival is an annual, large-scale international event inaugurated in 2000.
