China Tour Documentary Film 2015


In 2015, SDYS celebrated its 70th anniversary with a tour to China, sponsored by Qualcomm Incorporated. Following a Bon Voyage Concert in Plaza de Panama, Balboa Park, an orchestra of 109 students and alumni joined 10 chaperons and 20 patrons on a 15-day tour of Beijing, Yantai, and Shanghai. The tour immersed the group in a musical and cultural exchange. The orchestra performed at the famed Forbidden City Concert Hall in Bejing, the Poly Grand Theatre in San Diego’s Sister City of Yantai and a special Fourth of July Concert in the prestigious Oriental Arts Center in Shanghai.

This one-hour documentary of the tour was produced in partnership with the San Diego State University School of Theatre, Television, and Film and will air on KPBS winter 2015.
