China Philharmonic Orchestra at BBC Proms 2014

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Saturday 19th July marks the China Philharmonic Orchestra’s BBC Proms debut at the Royal Albert Hall, launching this season’s global orchestras strand. Britain’s own queen of the trumpet, Alison Balsom, joins them in Shanghai-born Qigang Chen’s new trumpet concerto, a work co-commissioned by the KT Wong Foundation, China Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC, alongside Dutch and German partners. This is the first time ever that a Chinese orchestra has been invited to perform at the BBC Proms and it will be televised and broadcast over radio and the internet internationally.
