Cao Peng (Chinese: 曹鹏; born December 1925) is a Chinese conductor. Cao Peng was born into one of the most influential families in the once thriving trading centre of Jiangyin, related both to Cao Yuyuan, the famous court censor of the late Qing, and more distantly to the great Cao family (of which the most famous scion was Cao Xueqin) that had risen in the world from the 18th century. Similar success followed in the 1990s, when Cao, now in his sixties, took on responsibilities for the burgeoning orchestral music scene in Shanghai, conducting the Shanghai People's Orchestra (Chinese: 上海民族乐团) from 1992, later also the orchestra of the Nanyang Middle School.
The music produced by the Chinese orchestra however is unique and very distinct from any Western counterpart. Such orchestras usually perform Chinese orchestral music called guoyue or minyue, although its repertoire may occasionally include adaptations of Western orchestral pieces or music originally composed for Western instruments. In the early 20th century a number of Chinese musicians became interested in improving traditional Chinese music

Such ensembles sometimes play in juxtaposition with melodic ensembles. There are also ensembles that consist solely of drums.
