Boston is first US orchestra back in Japan

The Boston Symphony will make a four-coty tour of Japan in November, the first US ensemble to return since Covid and its first foreign tour since 2018.

CEO Gail Samuel says: ‘As the Boston Symphony Orchestra embarks on our first overseas tour since 2018, we are more aware than ever before of the importance of the orchestra’s vibrant network of music communities, starting in Boston and reaching throughout the country and across the globe. The BSO’s special relationship with Japan has been forged over many years through numerous past tours led by BSO Music Director Laureate Seiji Ozawa and this will be our second tour to Japan with Music Director, Andris Nelsons. We are thrilled to be performing for our Japanese audiences.’
