The Contemporale series began in the autumn of 2014 as a collaboration between the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and Split Works and hosts exciting contemporary musical acts in a classical music environment, at the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra’s new home in downtown Shanghai.
The 2014-15 season saw piano, guitar and strings from the Ukraine (Lubomyr Melnyk), Canada (Moonface) and the US (Bill Callahan). The 2015-16 season saw seven sold-out shows from six artists, including three performances in the 1,200 seat Concert Hall. These ranged from the neo-classical (Olafur Arnalds), avant-pop (Julia Holter) and baroque (John Grant) to alt-rock (Destroyer), folk (Damien Rice) and modern country (Lambchop).
