Tan adds that the concert will also showcase another piece, Olympic Fanfare and Theme, composed by John Williams. The work, which has become a classic, was commissioned by the Los Angeles Olympic Committee from the composer in 1994. The piece won a Grammy for Williams and became one of the most well-known musical themes in the history of the Olympic Games.

"From 2020 to 2022, the Meet in Beijing Arts Festival will have an Olympic theme, since Tokyo will host the Olympic Games in 2020 and the Olympic Winter Games will take place in Beijing in 2022," says Tan. "This piece reminds you of the spirit of the Olympics."
