The concert was composed of multiple and colorful elements. Classical and modern pieces of music, played together, creating a whole new vision of the moment. Western and Chinese-type music collided here-and-there to create a fascinating mix for all the audience. There were Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt, Suite No.2 for flute and clarinet, Taylor Swift's Love Story for piano and cello and even the theme music of the Sister Act and of the Lion King.  Accompanied by trumpet and jazz drum, the sprightly rhythm jumped up and became more lively on the stage. When the wood wind instruments appeared, the concert stepped into the traditional Chinese part. Folk music like Jasmine and Plum were sung in the traditional soprano form of the Chinese culture.
