This concert is one of the main activities of the 13th China Yangtze River Three Gorges International Tourism Festival. Since 2018, the concert has been successfully held on the bank of Pinghu Lake in Wanzhou four times. It has been selected as one of the "People's Big Stage" online cultural brand activities of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, P.R.C. It has become a high-quality culture and tourism brand and a big stage for artists worldwide to jointly perform great songs about rivers and enjoy the Three Gorges culture.

In addition, the concert adopted the most advanced broadcast van based on 5G and 4K ultra-high-definition technology and other special equipment, which perfectly recorded the whole activity, presented the imposing scenery of Wanzhou, offered an appealing high-tech show, and improved the audience's sense of participation, gain, and interaction.

With graceful dancing and passionate singing, the concert was like a river flowing from the source and pouring down from the stage, bringing the audience an immersive audio-visual experience.

"Rivers, like the earth's arteries, nourish the land and feed the people from generation to generation." Then the first movement, "River," began. Singers from five continents of the world performed the suite of songs "The Voice of the Great River," making the voices of civilization blend and glow in the night sky.

The wind of civilization has blown across the long river of history, forging the spirit of the country and nation. The second movement, "Harmony," began with the Chinese traditional instrument performance "Song in the Heart." Then Chang Sisi, a Chinese coloratura soprano, sang "Ballet in Spring," drawing cheers with her amazing high notes. In addition, Tibetan female singer Alan Dawazhuoma, who was full of praise for Wanzhou, sang "Valley of Beauty" and "Flying Wild Geese." The song and dance scene drama "Love in Work Songs of the Yangtze Boat Trackers," performed by Chongqing Three Gorges Song and Dance Troupe, Chongqing Three Gorges Acrobatic Art Troupe and Chongqing Three Gorges Sichuan Opera Troupe, brought the audience a visual and auditory enjoyment.
