Ningbo Municipal Library to Build Tianyi Chinese Traditional Orchestra

Ningbo Municipal Library is going to build a national orchestra! It is learned from Ningbo Library that a national orchestra, with traditional Chinese music as its focus, is under construction now. The orchestra, which fuses traditional Chinese music with western elements, is a non-profit organization, aiming at inheriting and developing the traditional Chinese music as well as spreading Ningbo Haisi culture.


In January 2015, Ningbo Library set up a special music hall —— Tianyi Music Hall, which serves as a public music space for citizens. Up to now, it has held more than 400 activities and has received warm response from the citizens. In the 2016 Annual Meeting of Chinese Library,  Ningbo Librarys successful experience of holding these activities was shared. Xu Yibo, the chief librarian of Ningbo Library, said that many domestic public libraries also build music halls inside the library. However, these music halls focus on training courses and the appreciation of the music. Few would emphasize their own brand building as Tianyi Music Hall does.


At present, the new library has entered the stage of refined decoration. It is expected that it will be completed around next Spring Festival. And nearly 1000 square meters will be reserved for the construction of the music hall. Actually we have been thinking about how to improve and develop Tianyi Music Hall. We hope that setting up a Chinese traditional orchestra can enrich the connotation of music activities and promote the construction of Ningbo as a music city.
