Shanghai Symphony Orchestra | World Tour | Summer 2019
Aug 2019 - Sep 2019

Introduction

In celebration of its 140th anniversary, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra (SSO) – Asia’s oldest symphony orchestra – will embark on a three-week world tour this summer with Music Director Long Yu.

The SSO’s world tour runs from 14 August to 1 September, during which the orchestra makes debuts at the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival, Wolf Trap and Ravinia Festival, in addition to returning to Lucerne Festival, Grafenegg Festival and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw.

In striving to promote and build cultural exchanges between East and West as part of its “Music Connecting Worlds” ethos, the SSO performs Wu Xing (The Five Elements) by leading Chinese composer Qigang Chen, throughout its tour, as well as concertos with Alisa Weilerstein, Frank Peter Zimmermann and Eric Lu.
