On July 22, after our visit to the Forbidden City, President Cizhao Wang of the Central Conservatory hosted a luncheon for Yale faculty and staff who were in Beijing for the Musicathlon and Philharmonia tour. Joining him were other members of the CCOM faculty and staff, including Yongyan Hu, music director of the EOS orchestra who would conduct the Mahler Second Symphony the next night at the National Center for the Performing Arts.

The Yale attendees included Deputy Dean Thomas Masse, Dr. James Perlotto, faculty members Robert Van Sice and William Purvis with his wife Mihae Lee, staff members Dana Astmann, Jennifer Chen, Krista Johnson, Grant Meachum, Vincent Oneppo, and  Renata Steve.
