Over 70 students, from ages 5 to 15, from the harp summer camp, performed as soloists, duos and chamber music groups. Pieces enchanted the audience such as Little Star adapted from the famous lullaby Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, composed by Mozart based on English poet Jane Taylor's poem of the same title, and My Dancing Days, a suite for harp ensemble arranged by harpist Skaila Kanga.

"I'm happy to witness the changes and a growing number of harp students over the past 10 years. We let students share classes together since it's a good way to learn from each other. When they produce sounds together in harmony, they are happy too and encouraged to continue to study the musical instrument," says Wang, adding that the students traveled from different parts of China to attend the summer camp, such as Yunnan, Shaanxi and Hebei provinces.
