The National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) staged an online concert on Monday evening to celebrate International Museum Day 2020.
Themed "Amazing Harmony," the special concert presented various Chinese and foreign classical music styles, integrating different instruments and forms of art, including harpsichords, pianos, dancing and chorus.
The event also featured exhibitions on traditional Chinese opera, the NCPA's original stage productions and art collection.
The International Museum Day, coordinated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM), has been celebrated around May 18 every year since 1977. The theme selected by ICOM this year is "Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion."
