BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Tour of Japan 2019

In October 2019, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra visited Japan for the inaugural BBC Proms Japan.

Taking place from 30 October to 4 November in Tokyo and Osaka, the six-day festival saw Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard lead the BBC SSO in daily concerts covering a wide range of repertoire. The trip featured many recognisable features of the BBC Proms, including the iconic First and Last Nights, featuring well-loved musical favourites and traditions.

In addition to the Proms concerts, the orchestra held interactive musical workshops in two schools in Yokohama.
