A free public orchestral concert was performed by a group of young musicians in Palmerston North, Manawatu-Wanganui in New Zealand on Oct 23 to conclude a long weekend of the Youth Orchestra Festival and to promote cultural exchanges among young people.

The closing concert, co-hosted by the China Cultural Center in New Zealand and the Manawatu Youth Orchestra, featured local orchestras, including the Manawatu Youth Orchestra, Kapiti Youth Orchestra and Wellington Youth Sinfonietta, and involved a Chinese repertoire.

The concert was performed by around 90 young musicians aged 9 to 19 and encompassed Russian, European and Chinese styles to reflect the cultural diversity of the orchestra members. The repertoire included Dance of the Yao People – a Chinese classic, Three Kazakh Dances, and Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.
