    The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra · Music Connecting Worlds The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra uses music to communicate, connect and engage with audiences around the world. The symphony believes that music – when expressed in its essence – is an entirely different form of communication – a fourth way for humans to communicate – beyond just the written word, spoken language and body expression. This music communicates in a language that crosses all ethnic, social, cultural and emotional boundaries. As Asia’s oldest orchestra, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra brought Western classical music to China. Today, it remains a world-class orchestra which attracts internationally renowned artists while it still retains its Chinese essence: the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra is a beacon of culture and arts for the city of Shanghai. Story of Logo   The logo of Shanghai Symphony Orchestra originates from the connection between music and human. The basic graphic component of the logo is circle, which represents perfection, harmony and the diffuse of sound. Upon the circles, there are cut-ins of the notes so that these two elements are integrated. The notched circles means Shanghai's tolerance to diversity. Two circles next to each other vertically comprise the English letter “S” and two “S”s plus an “O”, as a circle could resemble, together make up “SSO”, the abbreviation of Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, which embodies the tribute to and heritage of the last edition of the logo. The whole logo is an assembly of humans, just like that of an orchestra, a  connection of single units, as  well as the sense of harmony. The new logo also has a sense of wave, provoking the association of water and river. This is the very paramount characteristic of Shanghai, a metropolis on the west shore of the Pacific.
