Day 6: Winging it to Wuhan

Today the Choir flew to Wuhan, the capital of the province of Hubei. Wuhan was established more than more than 3,500 years ago and is one of the cradles of Chinese civilisation. Located at the crossroads of central China, Wuhan has the world’s third longest river, the Yangtse River (Chang Jiang) as well as the Han River running through the city.

Upon their arrival in Wuhan the Choir were met by the Vice Deputy of the International Department of Huazhong Normal University, Mr Yichuan Zhang. Huazhong Normal University is 107 years old and was one of the first universities in China to be qualified by the Ministry of Education. Specialising in teacher education and set in beautiful tropical gardens Huazhong Normal University is also a partner of the University of Newcastle in Australia.
During their stay the Choir are being accommodated in the new HNU International Student Accommodation Building –a multi-storey building with Internet access, air conditioning, colour television, and a kitchen and laundry on each floor. After settling into their rooms the Choir were fortunate to be guests at a fabulous banquet hosted by Mr Zhang in the beautiful dining room of the GuiYuan Hotel.
