In an exciting venture on the international stage, the orchestra will be traveling to the People's Republic of China （中华人民共和国） and the Republic of China, Taiwan （中華民國）to perform in world-class concert halls and engage local audiences and students, musicians and non-musicians alike, in a cultural exchange and conversation about the importance of cultural citizenship, collaborative leadership, and versatile fundamentals of chamber music. Furthermore, the orchestra's concert season expands to celebrate its long-standing partnership with the Harvard College Piano Society, featuring five formal performances during the new season. A new collaboration with student composer Sam Wu will usher in a new era of contemporary music projects by the orchestra.
