Project description

More than 20 years after its ground-breaking Asian tour, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) is set to return to China and Korea in October 2019. To be led by its Artist-in-Association, the legendary violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman, the ASO will join an elite group of the world's leading orchestras when it performs at the prestigious Beijing Music Festival and the Shanghai International Arts Festival. Of special significance is the ASO's inaugural visit to two other spectacular venues: the Tongyeong Concert Hall, our sister UNESCO City of Music's premier music centre; and the recently-opened, futuristic Zhuhai Opera House in China's Pearl River Delta.
