The international orchestra scene is on the move. From 5th to 7th October 2016 orchestra managers from Russia and Asia met for the 11th AAPRO summit in Tokyo. “AAPRO” stands for Alliance of Asia-Pacific Region Orchestras.
Hosted by the Association of Japanese Orchestras participants discussed several topics, latest developments in South Korea with its 30 professional orchestras or the role of orchestras at Olympic Games. Rudolph Tang, Chinese journalist from Shanghai, reports in depth here.
Next AAPRO summit will be hosted by the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra in August 2018 in Shanghai.
