Under the leadership of Music Director Shao-Chia Lü, Taiwan’s National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) has partnered with Taiwan Public Television and the National Theatre and Concert Hall to bring its upcoming concerts to the rest of the world. The performances will be livestreamed on YouTube and other platforms in 4K ultra-high-definition and will also be available to view after each concert.

The first live concert takes place Sunday, May 24th, beginning at 19:30 Taiwan time (12:30 CET/7:30 EDT) and includes Dvorak’s Serenade in D minor, followed by Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C Major. Rounding out the program is Tyzen Hsiao’s Bang Chhun Hong (Longing for the Spring Breeze).

The second and the third concerts will follow on Saturday, May 30 and Friday, June 12, featuring Mozart’s Serenade No. 10 Gran Partita, Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings in E Major, and Beethoven’s Fifth and Seventh Symphonies.

Update: The first concert on the 24th has been ok’d by the government to have a live audience.  The NSO is going to have 500 people in the hall (they will take temperature checks, everyone will be required to wear masks, spaced seating, etc). As many as 1,000 people may be able to attend future concerts!
