The U.S. Consulate welcomed the Philadelphia Orchestra back to Hong Kong and Macau. The Philadelphia Orchestra kicked off its 2016 Asia tour to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Macau, Tokyo, Kawasaki, and Osaka. The tour started in Hong Kong, with the orchestra’s first visit to the city in eleven years. The Orchestra, whose long history of exchange with China was enhanced by becoming part of the U.S.-China Consultation on People-to-People Exchange (CPE) in 2011, performed two sold-out shows at Hong Kong Cultural Centre May 19-20, and for a nearly full house at the Venetian Macao on May 28 and 29.
