Adelaide Symphony Orchestra performs in Beijing
The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra has performed a concert in Beijing, which included classic pieces like 'Turkish March' from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
It's been more than 20 years since the orchestra's first groundbreaking Asian tour.

Vincent Ciccarello is the managing director of the orchestra.
"Beyond that, it's much more broadly the people-to-people connections that we make. We have many old friends in China. We welcome the opportunity now to make new friends. We hope that we can continue to develop those relationships at a musical level and more broadly, just to continue to bridge our two countries."
Earlier reports said the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra would send 66 musicians to perform a series of concerts in China and South Korea this month.
