With the fingers, the notes flow slowly from the strings, and the distant sound sounds, leading the audience's thoughts to the distance. "Hua Xuyin", "Feng Qihuang", "Zhuang Zhou's Dream Butterfly" and other programs are staged again and again, both guqin solo, and the harmony of voices and Xiao voices, which will show the charm of Chinese music that has been inherited for thousands of years.

"It's gorgeous. It's like traveling through 3,000 years to witness the fusion of culture and emotion, Musical Instruments and human voices. It makes people feel peaceful and harmonious. David Anthony Knop, the deputy head of the American university sports delegation present, felt rather poetic, "I am also very interested in other Chinese culture, dance, music and even food... I think it's all about people finding ways to express their emotions over thousands of years."

The concert was also part of the "Be Together" themed gala held at the Olympic Village. From July 30 to August 7, the series of themed soires were held every day at the Universiade Village Art Center, inviting members of delegations from the Universiade to participate, aiming to promote cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries.

"Many of the works are finished works that we have kept for a long time, but in order to present a better performance, we still re-arranged them for more than a month after receiving the notice." "Today's performance is full of representative Chinese music," said Wang Pie, the male lead singer of the show. "I hope to convey Chinese culture and emotions to the delegation members from all over the world, and narrow the distance between them."
