The Philadelphia Orchestra’s 2015 Tour of Europe marks Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestra’s inaugural tour of Europe together, as well as the 60th anniversary of the Orchestra’s first visit to the European Continent, with 14 concerts in 10 cities over three weeks. Beginning in Luxembourg May 21, the Tour makes appearances in Dortmund, Lyon, Cologne, Dresden, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, and Amsterdam, concluding on June 6 in London. Pianist Emanuel Ax, violinist Lisa Batiashvili, and pianist Jan Lisiecki join the Orchestra as soloists on the Tour.

The Philadelphia Orchestra joins with two delegations representing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia to introduce Europe not only to the Orchestra under the leadership of Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, but also to promote Pennsylvania as a global destination for tourism, trade, and business development. In addition to concert performances the Orchestra’s visits to Lyon and London will highlight cultural exchange, business growth, and community outreach.
