Among the five still existing and state-owned theaters and orchestras which are under the governance of Kunming Municipal Culture and Tourism Bureau, it is the only one which has an independent organizational structure in the Yunnan Province and is a public welfare institution wholly funded by the government. In 2016, Mr. Huang Yi, a well-renowned conductor, was hired by Kunming Nie Er Symphony Orchestra as the first artistic director and chief conductor. Since then, great efforts have been made to help this orchestra grow into a professional symphony orchestra with first class standards to act as a city visiting card featuring the most inspiring cultural and artistic attributes of Kunming.
