World-renowned orchestra to conclude 12-City North American Tour in Dayton

Under the direction of conductor Xincao Li, one of the most prestigious conductors on the international scene today, the China National Symphony Orchestra will visit the Schuster Center in Dayton on Monday, May 22, 2006. The CNSO is dedicated to performing works by both Asian and Western composers. The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra is presenting the CNSO as an addition to its 2005-2006 Special Events series lineup.

The CNSO is one of the most outstanding professional symphony orchestras in China. Founded originally in 1956 as the Central Philharmonic Orchestra of China, in 1996 – to reflect the changes that had taken place during the previous 40 years – the orchestra underwent an official renaming and restructuring. Vice-Director Guan Xia, a well-known composer, and Conductor Xincao Li are taking the orchestra into a new future.

The DPO will announce the complete repertoire for the 8 p.m. program at a later date. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade will definitely be on the program.

Dayton is the last stop on the CNSO’s 2006 North American Tour. The other cities the CNSO will perform in include San Francisco; Los Angeles; New York City; Long Island University; Bethesda, Maryland; Worcester, Massachusetts; Boston; Cornell University; Buffalo, Toronto, and Chicago.
