Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony perform for the first time in Beijing, China, on a six-city, 10-concert tour of Asia in November 2012. The Orchestra also performs two concerts in San Francisco’s sister city, Shanghai, and in Hong Kong, and plays its first concerts in Taiwan in 20 years. Its two concerts in Tokyo mark their first return to Japan in 15 years. Pianist Yuja Wang, a native of Beijing, is soloist with MTT and the Orchestra in all six cities on the tour.
