Announcement of Conductor & Program Change for October 2020 Subscription Concerts

Maestro Myung-Whun Chung, Honorary Music Director of the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, will not be able to visit Japan, due to the Japanese government's fourteen-day quarantine restriction on foreignn nationals entering Japan. Maestro Min Chung, our Associate Conductor, is going to conduct the performances in his place. A part of the program will change as well.

We hope you look forward to the performance conducted by Maestro Min Chung. We are sure you will enjoy the energy and artistry he will bring to the occasion in his own way as Maestro Myung-Whun Chung’s substitute.
