Every year around this time, the Beijing Music Festival presents a series of exciting classical music performances.

Launched by conductor Yu Long in 1998, the festival also aims at popularizing classical music and fostering a new generation of classical music lovers with events, such as master-classes and guidance before concerts.

With the novel coronavirus disrupting this year's plans, Yu and the festival team decided to move the festival, which runs from Oct 10 to today, online and out of the concert halls.

Via the BMF Club app, audiences are able to listen to more than 240 hours of nonstop broadcasting. And the festival organizers cooperated with Beijing Music Radio to present 10 noontime concerts in unconventional venues.
