The CHINA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA (CPO) was established in 2000 and has experienced exponential growth and development while becoming China’s top orchestra as well as a leading figure in Asia with an international reputation. Achieving impressive accolades and worldwide attention in its sixteen seasons, the CPO was named among the ten most inspiring orchestras by Gramophone online in the spring of 2009.
The CPO proudly and actively discovers innovative methods and platforms to promote classical music to a wider audience and in the last sixteen years has presented over 3,000 compositions with more than 1,000 performances to millions of audience members, many featured as world and Chinese premieres.
The China Philharmonic Orchestra’s domestic and international tours have accumulated more than one million kilometers, an equivalent of circling the world 20 times and only in the past two seasons have the China Philharmonic Orchestra toured the Silk Road and the Maritime Silk Road countries, as well as making its Russian debut last July.
This third U.S. tour of the CPO is part of the “2016 Tour of the Americas,” with prestigious concerts at Jackson Hall, Davis, CA; Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco; Walt Disney Concert Hall; Memorial Hall, UNC Chapel Hill, NC; Strathmore Hall, North Bethesda, MD; Tilles Center Concert Hall, Greenvale, NY; and David Geffen Hall, NYC. The orchestra will also make appearances in Canada and the Republic of Cuba.
