The Asian Youth Orchestra (AYO), comprising more than 100 finest young musicians in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, will be giving the grand finale of its 2017 international concert tour at BOZAR in Brussels on 5 September.
The artistic director and conductor of the Asian Youth Orchestra, Richard Pontzious, founded the AYO in Hong Kong in 1990 with the distinguished violinist, conductor and humanitarian Yehudi Menhuin.
Chosen through highly competitive auditions around the region, the musicians are together for six weeks each summer, initially for a three-week rehearsal camp in Hong Kong, then for a three-week international concert tour with celebrated conductors and solo artists.
Soloist Sarah Chang is recognised as one of the foremost violinists of our time. She has performed with the most prestigious orchestras, conductors and accompanists in an international career spanning two decades. Since her debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of eight, Ms Chang has continued to impress audiences with her technical virtuosity and refined emotional depth.
