The SSO will be playing on Sept 2 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The orchestra will be conducted by their music director, Lan Shui, and the concert will feature German-born Swiss musician Andreas Haefliger on the piano.
They will be playing pieces from Glinka and Rachmaninov, as well as a commissioned work by Chinese-American composer Zhou Long.
