Performers featured pianists Kong Xiang Dong and blind artist Zeng Kai, Shanghai musician Li Quan and film actress Huang Sheng Yi. Nearly 700 people attended the live concert.
Dirk de Cuyper, GM of Hilton Sanya Resort & Spa, said ‘We want to give something back to the community and celebrate our first anniversary in a meaningful way.’
The Hilton Sanya has recently begun to work closely with the Kong Xiang Dong Music Arts Centre and 2007 plans involve more concerts being hosted at the Hilton featuring international musicians.
