Summer 2016 Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership Details Announced

Posted April 21, 2016

New York Philharmonic Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership 

Today we announced plans for the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership’s summer activities: four students from the Shanghai Orchestra Academy (SOA) will travel to NYC for the New York Philharmonic Global Academy Fellowship Program, June 11–17, and the Philharmonic will travel to Shanghai for its second annual performance residency, July 2–8.

If you’re in New York in June, you can catch the four lucky SOA students — violinist Aolie Wu, violist Tong Ba, oboist Shuang Lv, and bassoonist Hui Zhang — in action. Their week of activities will include playing Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony alongside the Orchestra, led by Music Director Alan Gilbert, at the Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, in Central Park and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

If you’re in Shanghai in July, you can catch the Philharmonic’s second annual performance residency there. The residency will include performances with soloists Daniil Trifonov and Gil Shaham; a complete screening of Chaplin’s City Lights with the score performed live; a Young People’s Concert featuring media personality Dashan and music by Very Young Composers; SOA activities including master classes, lessons, coachings, and a side-by-side Philharmonic rehearsal with Academy students; a Very Young Composers workshop and performance; a free, public, outdoor concert featuring the New York Philharmonic Principal Brass Quintet; and the graduation ceremony for SOA’s first class.
