Acclaimed Young German Symphony Orchestra to Tour USA with American Family as Soloists

The Young German Symphony Orchestra (YGSO), under the direction of Maestro Klaus Arp, will tour the U.S. from October 3-19. The YGSO is the foremost young orchestra of Germany. This tour celebrates 400 years of German contributions to America.

The renowned American musical family, the Borowskys (Cecylia, cello; Elizabeth, piano; Emmanuel, violin; and Frances Grace, cello), were invited to perform as soloists in Ludwig van Beethoven's Triple Concerto and Samuel Barber's Cello Concerto.

Most recently, the Borowskys performed Pre-Olympic concerts titled "One World, One Dream, One Family" in China (including performances as soloists with Chinese orchestras). Their concerts were enthusiastically received by audiences in China.
