We are delighted to showcase some wonderful videos from The Shanghai Camerata and Ensemble I Fiori Selvatici. Watch these videos below.

The Shanghai Camerata

The Shanghai Camerata has been bringing European music from the 17th and 18th century to Chinese audiences since 2016, and has been gaining recognition at home and abroad. We aim to bring repertoire unknown to the Chinese audience and spark interest in early music performance practices, as well as establishing this genre of music as part of the concert canon.
