The Tokyo Philharmonic has the longest history and tradition of any orchestra in Japan. As plans were being made for its 100th anniversary celebrations in 2011, a devastating earthquake and tsunami struck Japan. The orchestra's centenary plans were scuttled, as an entire culture adjusted to a solemn new reality.

A cherished dream of the Tokyo Philharmonic will finally come to pass, with a 100th anniversary world tour encompassing six countries on three continents. Internationally renowned Japanese conductor Eiji Oue will lead the orchestra for the tour. The March 11 concert will mark the U.S. debut of the orchestra, as well as the third anniversary (to the day) of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Complete program (subject to change):

Toshiro Mayuzumi (1929-97) - Bugaku

Kiyoshige Koyama (1914-2009) - Kobiki-Uta

Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) - Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring)
