China Festival in Amsterdam
"From 1 to 18 October 2005, Amsterdam will be virtually 'sinified'. Outdoor events include Chinese markets, fireworks, dragon boat races, religious temple processions and puppet shows (much of this freely accessible). There wil be major conferences on Chinese science and economy, Chinese sports events in the Olympic Stadium, contemporary art exhibitions, meetings with Chinese poets and writers, as well as numerous films, concerts and theatre events. Those interested in contemporary Chinese music may want to attend several concerts by Tan Dun (one of the key figures in the festival), and premiere performances of Chinese symphonic and chamber music by the Nieuw Ensemble, Concertgebouw Orchestra, Kronos Quartet, China National Symphony Orchestra etc.
