It was in the month of August, 2017 when we opened our doors and our hearts to welcome BIMFA students and artists in Beijing and to commence the two intensive weeks of musical and cultural interchange and communion. It is easy to say that for two complete weeks, all of us were profoundly engrossed and immersed in music, while living the culture surrounding us. We are proud and overjoyed for the glorious and successful 12th festival season.
