The Philadelphia Orchestra is proud to present the first tour in North America of the National Centre for the Performing Arts Orchestra, along with Philadelphia trained Chinese pianist and audience favorite Yuja Wang. The Orchestra is the National Centre’s long-term strategic partner in China. Celebrating its 10th anniversary as the unmistakable “crown jewel” of China’s performing arts, the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing has become the country’s indisputable leading institution for performing arts and the city’s great landmark of its dynamic cultural life, and now ranks among the finest spaces for the world’s classical music events.
