Classical 105.9 FM WQXR Reports: New York Philharmonic Signs Partnership with Shanghai Orchestra

Announced at a signing ceremony in Shanghai last Sunday, the New York Philharmonic has signed an agreement with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra to collaborate on a new orchestra training institute in Shanghai, as well as a series of touring exchanges and joint commissioning of new works.

The training institute, set to launch in 2013 in conjunction with the opening of a new concert hall for the Shanghai Symphony, will provide a graduate-level music instruction for 20 to 30 students. Every two to three months, groups of New York Philharmonic musicians and staff will travel to Shanghai where they will provide master classes and other intensive sessions, said Anastasia Boudanoque, a manager at Columbia Artists Management, which represents the Shanghai Symphony's touring activities.
