The songs were performed in the White House, United States Capitol, Liberty Island and Times Square. On Aug. 11, the concert was featured at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater, one of the off-Broadway theaters located in Lincoln Center.

Youth of China, composed by You Jingbo, a Chinese American composer and professor  has been devoted to the noble cause for years, the innovative Chinese Classical Literary Songs features  music album and books of Chinese poems. In addition, it is a marvelous music project that is jointly supported  by  well-known musicians from China and the USA. The songs in the album are composed in traditional Chinese scale, based on pentatonic scale with music notes which are called gong,  shang,  jue,  zhi and yu in Chinese. They are integrated with a great many elements of Chinese folk music such as Peking Opera, Yueju  Opera and Pingtan, but their presentation styles are mostly western, including jazz, rock & roll and reggae. Creating an album of songs combining traditional Chinese music,  modern, classic and fashionable, the oriental and western characteristics.

On Aug. 11, the Chinese literary songs made their Broadway debut in New York. More than twenty  Chinese and American teenagers gave fantastic performances of the beautiful Chinese literary songs, including Song of Tomorrow, Three Character Classic, Crying Ospreys and Homecoming. After  the performance, You Jiang, the President of the China Press, was invited to deliver a speech. The song of Three Character Classic which  was performed by a choir of students from the Sitan Tai chi & Martial Arts brought down the house.

You Jingbo, hoped these songs could help deepen the understanding of Chinese classical literature among the children and raise their interest to learn in the ways of listening to the music, singing and performance. He also hoped to promote the Chinese tradition and culture by fostering education through entertainment.

The music concert was hosted by World Harmony Foundation (WHF), organized by National Music Educational Center (NMEC) and supported by Xinhua News Agency, Wen Wei Po, American Multimedia Television USA and United Nations Asking Congress Web TV Inc. and other media.

Jing Mengtao, an overseas student and freshman of Vocal Music Department of the University of the Arts based in Philadelphia, presided over the concert. Frank Liu, produced  the concert.

They were Shang Shuyu, Zheng Shuhan, You Shengsi, You Shengge, Wang Tian’ao, Harmony Liu (Liu Xin’ge), Eirene Liu (Liu Xinyuan), Joseph Liu (Liu Xiangjun), Wang Zhirou, Liu Entong, Gao Chenxin and so on. A Leisure Walk, was performed by You Shengsi and You Shengge and was received warm applause.  Jing Mengtao, who performed  the musicals – Crying Ospreys and On Poetry,  received large praise from the audience.
Gao Ge and You Jingbo, music mentors of this concert, also performed the songs – Qi Qiao and Butterflies in Love with Flowers.

Three American born Chinese, representatives of the Global Future Leader Organization (GFLO) in New York, demonstrated their passion in the study and performance of Chinese classical literary songs and were hailed as future leaders by the community. The eldest sister Harmony Liu (Liu Xin’ge, 12 years old), who is the peace ambassador of GFLO, vividly interpreted the song,  A Spring Day with guzheng (Chinese zither); Eirene Liu (Liu Xinyuan, seven years old) presented a solo vocal performance and dance; their younger brother Joseph Liu (Liu Xiangjun, three and a half years old) was the youngest among the three siblings , but the one with the best attitude and loudest voice.


On August 13, a global press conference of Chinese Classical Literary Song was held at the United Nations Headquarters (UNHQ). In this conference, the album named Chinese Classical Literary Song – Youth of China, sung by Jing Mengtao, was released to the world for the first time. Meanwhile, 100 sets of commemorative first-day cover featured by “Chinese Classical Literary Song Global Release” were issued through the United Nations Postal Administration.

At the same time, Frank Liu (Liu Fan), chairman of WHF awarded the certificates – World Youth Harmony Ambassador and World Outstanding Musician for Harmony to Jing Mengtao and You Jingbo respectively.

The album has been made available on global music platforms such as iTunes, Amazonmusic, Spotify and Deezer. Through these songs, the voice of traditional Chinese culture will be heard in more than 180 countries, including the United States, France, Russia, Japan, India and South Africa. Overseas Chinese could enjoy the voice of their motherland through mobile phones and the Internet; while non chinese speakers can  enjoy and learn to have a better understanding about Chinese traditional culture via the previews of digital music.

With the performance of Chinese classical literary songs, the event has laid the foundation for Chinese classical literary music going global.
