The Second Lang Lang Shenzhen Futian International Piano Festival dropped its curtains Sunday night at Shenzhen Concert Hall.

After six months of preparations, the weeklong event hosted 22 large-scale art and charity activities including piano competitions, lectures and concerts.

The festival adhered to the spirit of charity and openness by offering citizens 10,000 free tickets, aiming to enrich people’s spiritual lives and promote the cultural and ideological progress of Futian District and Shenzhen at large.

As one of the highlights of the festival, the Futian Cup National Youth Piano Elite Contest attracted over 300 entries and eventually 48 contestants from home and abroad reached the final rounds of the Kids Section and the Youth Section.

To promote Chinese music and help more children to better understand Chinese music and traditional Chinese culture, the competition presented a Best Interpretation of Chinese Works Award which was won by Li Junjie, a 10-year-old from Jingpeng Primary School who also took the first place in the Kids Section.

The competition in the Youth Section was much fiercer with students from professional conservatories competing to win it all. The first place went to Zhang Bo from the Music Middle School Affiliated to the Shanghai Conservatory of Music.
