"While the SCH is widely recognized as a venue for classical music-presenting masters' works-it is also our mission and responsibility, as an established music hall, to encourage local artists and promote new compositions."

Over the past two years, six concerts have been held as part of the series, covering Chinese folk operas, electronic music, jazz, pingtan (an age-old type of storytelling and ballad singing) and new media performances.

Speaking about the musicians' response, Fang says: "Artists were ready to jump out of their comfort zones, break existing boundaries, and explore new territories with us.

"This year, again, we will premiere three productions, thanks to the courage of the artists.

"I am grateful for the trust they have in us, believing that we will enable them to achieve something that is otherwise impossible."
