Asian-Pacific Orchestra Summit

Asian-Pacific Orchestra Summit

Devoted to serving the interests and advocacy of orchestras and ensembles in Asia Pacific region, the Alliance of Asia-Pacific Region Orchestras (AAPRO) was founded in 1996. Since then, it has contributed enormously to enhancing exchanges among its members, raising professional standards and increasing classical music audiences in the region. The AAPRO is a creative platform for its member orchestras to exchange with their peers around the globe. It also supports its members to promote their profiles in the world of music. Its affiliation, the Asia-Pacific United Orchestra, is such a vehicle that showcases the functions of AAPRO on the stage.

Some members of APPRO apart from the NCPA and the SOI include China Symphony Development Foundation, Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Taiwan Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and Moscow City Symphony “Russian Philharmonic” among many others.

The state of Western classical music in India

Western Music Traditions in the subcontinent have been present since the advent of trade and contact with Europe. Our story ranges from the worship based music of the Jesuit mission churches; the westernization under the British Raj; to the ambitious and indefatigable amateur groups who maintained an interest for performances and schooling through the last century, to the modern millennium of professional accomplishment.   India faces a unique set of challenges and our story is interwoven with the local fabric.
