Collection of chamber music donated by Canadian violinist and her Swiss conductor husband graces new library building.

Canadian violinist Chantal Juillet celebrated her 63rd birthday in Guangzhou, Guangdong province on Dec 19. Conductor Yu Long presented her with a birthday cake and the musicians of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra played an impromptu rendition of Happy Birthday to You for her.

On that day, the Chantal Juillet& Charles Dutoit Chamber Music Library was unveiled, with Juillet and her husband, Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit, attending the ceremony.

The library houses the scores of more than 3,000 chamber works by 230 composers from the 17th century to the present day, all donated by Chantal Juillet. In September 2020, the scores arrived in Guangzhou, sent from Montreal, Canada.
