Asian Youth Orchestra Concert Tour 2024 – Singapore

August 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm

$15 – $55

Asia’s premier pre-professional orchestra, the Asian Youth Orchestra will be embarking on its 2024 Asian Concert Tour with a line-up of much-loved French composers, Ravel, Lalo and Debussy in Singapore on 14 August.

Internationally celebrated cellist, Alban Gerhardt will play Lalo’s Cello Concerto. He brings over 30 years of experience to the stage, and is recognised as one of the most versatile cellists today.

The orchestra will be led by Principal conductor Joseph Bastian, who inspired the AYO on major annual tours throughout Europe and Asia since 2022.

Since its inaugural performances in 1990, the award-winning orchestra has played over 400 concerts in Asia, Europe, the US and Australia, to an audience of more than one million concertgoers. It made its Lucerne Festival debut in 2017, is a recipient of Japan’s Praemium Imperiale and Nikkei Asia Prize, and is counted “amongst the finest youth orchestra round the world.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

AYO’s 100-plus orchestra members are selected annually through a strict audition process. They represent China Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Macao, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Over the years, a staggering 25,000 musicians, aged 17 to 27 have auditioned for its annual tours. Four Singaporeans have been selected to perform with the AYO’s 2024 Asian Concert Tour.

Not to be missed, this year marks the 10th AYO concert in Singapore, a long-awaited moment after an 8-year gap since its last tour to Singapore in 2016.
