Over ten members of the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) paid a visit to Shanghai Orchestra Academy (SOA) from October 23 and 27, 2017, a press release of the Shanghai Conservatory says. During the five-day visit, young musicians from several European countries, including the UK, France, Germany and Bulgaria, performed alongside SOA students in routine rehearsals. In addition, SOA organized a series of cultural events, including an educational exchange lecture, giving the European visitors an extraordinary opportunity to learn about Chinese customs and traditions.

Championed by the Artistic Engagement Program-China, (AEP-China), an innovative cultural program jointly supported by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra (SSO) and Volkswagen Group China, SSO music director and SOA founder and president Yu Long and EUYO CEO Marshall Marcus agreed on the goal of the collaborative effort.

The interaction between the members of EUYO and SOA culminated with a joint concert held on October 27.
