About the Ticket Supplier: Asia America Symphony AssociationThe ASIA AMERICA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is dedicated to opening artistic and cultural borders throughout Southern California by fusing the music of east and west in innovative, exciting ways. Under the guidance of its conductor and music director David Benoit, the Symphony is currently striking out in bold new directions, inviting new Asian artists as well as prominent ones from abroad who may not be known to local audiences, combining performances of jazz and classical compositions within the same program, and introducing traditional Asian instruments into traditional western classical performances in very non-traditional ways.
The Symphony originated in 1961 as the Japanese Philharmonic Orchestra of Los Angeles, a community ensemble of union and non-union musicians. Founder Dr. Akira Kikukawa served as its conductor for three decades. In 1991, under the direction of former Los Angeles Philharmonic violist and assistant conductor Heiichiro Ohyama, it became a fully professional orchestra and was renamed the Japan America Symphony Orchestra. To better reflect the diversity of Los Angeles' growing Asian population, it was renamed the Asia America Symphony Orchestra in 1995. Renowned pianist and composer David Benoit was appointed Music Director and Conductor in 2001, and in the same year he formed the Asia America Youth Orchestra to provide young musicians up to age 18 with an innovative training program to develop their talents and prepare for multi-faceted careers as orchestra musicians.
Maestro David Benoit and the Asia America Symphony Orchestra have presented programs from Gershwin to Dvorak, Copland to Mozart, and Bernstein to Beethoven including the critically acclaimed "Bridging USA & Japan concert" at the Walt Disney Concert Hall featuring the complete reading of Beethoven's Symphony #9 and joined by four outstanding soloists and a chorus of 400. Performances with world-class musicians include Lea Salonga, Keiko Matsui, Hiroshima, Jon Nakamatsu, Sadao Watanabe, and Dave Koz, to name a few.
