5/25/2009-- Taiwanese and Chinese musicians will launch a joint symphony orchestra in July to promote peace across the Taiwan Strait, a Taiwan arts group said yesterday.
The Cross-Strait Peace Symphony Orchestra will be founded by Taiwan’s New Aspect Cultural and Educational Foundation and China’s State Symphony Development Foundation, New Aspect founder Hsu Poh-yun said.

The joint orchestra will have some 90 members. Most of them will come from the Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou symphony orchestras, with Taiwan contributing 25 musicians, he said by phone
