On the evening of July 6, a special concert of composers’ works was held, which was kicked off with a chorus performance of “Motto of Love” staged by the chorus of SCMZU with the youth chorus of Wuhan Musicians Association and the chorus of Central China Normal University. In the Inner Mongolian folk song “Swan Goose” that followed, the resounding voice of girls seemed to take the audience to the vast expanse of grasslands. The unaccompanied chorus “Sky” expressed enthusiasm and yearning for a wonderful life, with a dreamlike and passionate melody and beautiful and lyrical lyrics. The song “Graduation Season” was a sincere and vivid expression of the reluctance to say goodbye to each other. The concert was concluded with an exciting and free song “A New World”, fully showing the lofty sentiments and aspirations of Chinese people in the new era.

The 16th Chinese International Chorus Festival is the first national chorus festival undertaken by Wuhan since the reform and opening-up policy of China was implemented. During the performance and competition, the chorus of SCMZU showed the positive spirituality and professional performance of the students and the profound accumulation of SCMZU in the aesthetic education and teaching, which had received warm applauds from the audience and great praises from the experts.
