Chinese dulcimer artist Liu Yuening of the Central Conservatory of Music won the 2016 Euro-Sino Cultural Exchange Contribution Award on Dec 21 in Beijing.
The award was given by the European Institute for One Belt One Road Cooperation and Development (EUOBOR) headquartered in Budapest, Hungary.
The institute said last week the award was for her great effort and distinguished contribution to cultural and artistic exchanges between Europe and China.
EUOBOR said Liu, as one of the leaders of the Chinese dulcimer circle, attaches great importance to the exchange, mutual learning and communication between Chinese and European players.
Her effort not only enhances the mutual understanding and integration between Europe and China in the field of musical culture, but deepens the friendship between the two sides.
Led by Liu, the European Tour Troupe of Prizewinners of National Yangqin (Chinese dulcimer) Competitions of China visited Austria, Hungary and Romania in 2016.
This was an icebreaking trip for the exchange of musical culture between Chinese dulcimer and European dulcimer players. The Music Confucius Institute and Center for Exchange & Experience of Chinese and Foreign Music Culture, hosted by Liu, make significant contributions to the exchanges.
The award was given for the first time in 2016, to praise those Chinese and European institutes and people who greatly contributed to enhance the understanding, exchanges and cooperation in the field of literature and arts between China and Europe.
