The training lasted for five days, with both the executive and players of Suzhou Symphony Orchestra as trainees.
Chen Guangxian, head of Suzhou Symphony Orchestra, commented that Suzhou Symphony Orchestra would draw on the rich experience of RPO in art popularization and management through cooperation between the two sides. He expected more audiences would be attracted by classical music so that this art form would be further popularized.
