Boston Symphony Orchestra Returns To International Touring With A Six-Concert Japan Tour, November 9-15

The Boston Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Andris Nelsons, will return to touring for the first time since 2018, with a four-city, six-concert tour of Japan, encompassing performances in Yokohama's Minato Mirai Hall (11/9), Kyoto's Concert Hall (11/10), Osaka's Festival Hall (11/11), and Tokyo's Suntory Hall (11/13, 14 & 15). The Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons will present three programs for their 2022 Japan tour.

Tour activities will also include a program for junior high and high school students, an open rehearsal, and a master class for young musicians, presented my members of the orchestra's trumpet section.

The BSO's most recent tour with Mr. Nelsons was an eight-city, twelve-concert European tour in September 2018, preceded by a tour to Japan in November 2017 (the BSO and Nelsons' first tour together to Asia) and a nine-concert, eight-city European tour in spring 2016. In August/September of 2015, Andris Nelsons led his first tour as BSO music director, with highly acclaimed performances in London, Salzburg, Grafenegg, Lucerne, Milan, Paris, Cologne, and Berlin.

This tour is the Boston Symphony's 29th international tour in the Boston Symphony's history; it will be Mr. Nelsons' second visit to Asia as BSO Music Director (Japan, 2017) and his fifth international tour with the BSO. The BSO last performed in Tokyo and Osaka in 2017; the orchestra hasn't performed in Kyoto since 1989 and in Yokohoma since 1986, both times under Seiji Ozawa.
