    Professor Ye Xiaogang expressed at the meeting, “I am very pleased to come to Birmingham, the UK’s second-largest international city, which is known as the most culturally diverse city in the country. Birmingham has become the most rapidly developing cultural centre in the UK in recent years, especially renowned internationally for its symphony orchestras and jazz bands. The cultural and artistic atmosphere of its international districts is mesmerising and uplifting. A great city will nurture a great conservatoire, and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is such an institution. The Shenzhen School of Music at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) will also aim to match the standards of internationally renowned art schools, with the blueprint of becoming the cultural and artistic flagship of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.” Principal Ye highlighted the current status of the School of Music in terms of its operations, admissions, construction, research, international exchanges, and major performances, as well as the main premium projects and artistic directions for future cooperation.

    Candian Li, CEO of GML, also highly praised the visit, “We are honoured to support and be part of this important visit. It not only deepened our cooperation with top global music education institutions but also provided a valuable practical opportunity for the international music education exchanges advocated by GML. In the future, GML will continue to promote in-depth cooperation with the global music education community, dedicated to promoting the exchange and development of music culture worldwide.”

Through joint efforts, all parties will contribute to the prosperity and progress of global music education, cultivate more international music talents, and jointly promote the sustainable development of global music culture.
