Following the NY Phil’s Tour to Taiwan & Hong Kong, a delegation of musicians and staff traveled to Shanghai. The visit marked the first in-person activities as part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Partnership — a joint endeavor of the New York Philharmonic and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, in collaboration with the Shanghai Conservatory of Music — since 2019. Over the course of the week, nine Philharmonic musicians performed in the Music in the Summer Air Festival, shared their expertise through teaching and side-by-side performance, and attended the commencement ceremonies for the graduating instrumentalists receiving advanced degrees in 2023. Starr International Foundation has been the Presenting Sponsor of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Partnership since its inception in 2014.
