Philadelphia Orchestra Performs Impromptu Concert Onboard Delayed Flight

The Philadelphia Orchestra has been touring China recently, marking the anniversary of a landmark 1972 trip that heralded the reopening of relations between the U.S. and Beijing.

On Facebook, the orchestra said the musicians involved in the impromptu concert were Juliette Kang, Daniel Han, Che-Hung Chen, and Yumi Kendall.
