Pathe Villa – where the Chinese national anthem “March of the Volunteers” was recorded, will host a national anthem exhibition from the end of September.

Built in 1921, the Red Villa inside Xujiahui Park was once home to the Pathe Records studio and was the birthplace of China’s record industry.

Different versions of the Chinese national anthem will be presented and the stories behind it will be shared at the exhibition.

Night tours and 10 exhibits on the West Bund waterfront along the Huangpu River in Xuhui are scheduled during the fall cultural and tourist season.
