On tour in Beijing!

David Robertson and our musicians touched down in Beijing last Thursday for two concerts at the National Centre for the Performing Arts on a trip that also included street food adventures, trekking the Great Wall and working with local students.

Our fifth tour to China was a significant milestone. Not only was it part of the 45th anniversary celebrations of Australia-China relations, it also took place on the 10th birthday year of the NCPA and saw us re-sign our Memorandum of Understanding with this great institution. Japanese-born violinist Midori gave a stunning performance of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in a program that also saw us perform Ligeti's Romanian Concerto and  Prokofiev's Symphony No.5.
