A full day in preparation of our first concert in the Shanghai Symphony Hall.
First, the morning traditional rehearsal, testing the acoustic, finding our marks, followed by a substantial press conference for the residency of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra in Shanghai.
Our first program was a Ravel only evening, to our bassoon section’s delight!
Such a day had to end on a high note, and the Cloud 9 bar on the 87th floor of the Jin Mao tower was the perfect choice, for a drink in the excellent company of our percussion section! Somehow hard to find the way to that bar, but well worth the effort.
