Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestra embarked on their 2019 Tour of Asia this week, bringing their remarkable artistry to Taipei, Kyoto, Tokyo, Incheon (a debut performance), and Seoul, with pianists Haochen Zhang and Seong-Jin Cho and violinist Lisa Batiashvili as soloists. “We are proud to be ‘Your Philadelphia Orchestra’ not just in our beloved Philadelphia communities and across the country, but also around the globe,” said Yannick.
Welcome to Taiwan, first stop on The Philadelphia Orchestra’s 2019 Tour of Asia and the official birthplace of the global sensation known as Boba Milk Tea (or Bubble Tea). We are so excited to return to this amazing country with our beloved Orchestra colleagues. Given the nickname “Formosa” by the Portuguese in 1542 because of its mesmerizing beauty, this is where we grew up learning how to appreciate everything Taiwan has to offer, especially the food. And when you ask any Taiwanese living abroad what they miss most about Taiwan, the universal answer is the food.
