A Summer Picnic with Music in the Garden of the British Ambassador's Residence

Wind Ensemble of Five Principle Players of the China National Symphony Orchestra

British Embassy Residence

Come and join us for this last BIS event of the 2002-2003 year. Escape from the noise and bustle of everyday Beijing and enjoy the trees, grass, flowers, peace and tranquility of the British Embassy Residence Garden. Bring your picnic, wine, picnic rug, (umbrellas), and find a spot on the lawn with your friends before settling down to a magical evening listening to Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, etc.

The membership desk will be open at 6:00pm giving members plenty of time to arrive and set up their picnics. The Wind Ensemble will begin the performance at 7:00pm and will finish at about 8:45pm. There will be intervals during the performance giving the musicians time to rest and members time to stretch and socialize.
