Unique in the world, the Porcelain Orchestra of Jingdezhen symbolises the achievements of China’s so-called ‘porcelain city’, Jingdezhen where porcelain is on every street and every corner. Daily, in the grounds of the Ancient Kiln Museum, nine young ladies serenade visitors from a platform built out on a lake. All their instruments are made from high-fired porcelain: only the very best clay is used in the manufacture of their flutes, bells and stringed instruments. The sound produced is particularly resonant, clear and precise.

When you go to Jingdezhen don’t miss out on this experience. The girls¬†perform an especially striking version of Jingle Bells in their everyday performances!
