Asian Youth Orchestra ends US tour in New York with flourish

The 100-plus strong, Hong Kong-based Asian Youth Orchestra performed to a standing ovation in New York on August 13, a fitting note to close their tour across the United States. They had performed in San Francisco, San Jose, Washington D.C., and Brevard (NC) earlier in the month.

At the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in Long Island (NY), Director of HKETONY Joanne Chu congratulated the AYO’s chairman, Jim Thompson, and conductor Richard Pontzious (who is the founder and artistic director) on their successful tour. Founded in 1987, the orchestra has been committed to cultivate talented young musicians from all over Asia. This year’s orchestra includes 23 musicians from Hong Kong.

After the US tour, the young musicians will continue their journey to Europe, performing in the continental cities, including Milan, Toulouse, Berlin, Prague, and Brussels.

The August 13 performance at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in Long Island, NY, marked the end of Asian Youth Orchestra’s U.S. tour in 2017.
