Shanghai's acclaimed concert hall is to adopt a new season, aimed at being able to attract more world-class performers to appear there.
Shanghai Daily reports that the current season, which runs until July, doesn't fit well with the traditional touring programmes of classical musicians.
So, it'll now be open for performances until December.
The Hall was founded in 1930, and hs operated under its present name since 1959.
In 2007, the entire hall was lifted, and moved just under 70 metres.
Famous classical musicians including pianist Arcady Volodos, and French baroque ensemble Les Arts Florissants, are now scheduled to appear.
