The Philadelphia Orchestra recently performed at the Venetian Theatre in Macao as part of its tour of China and other countries in Asia this year.
Following the first of two concerts at the venue in the Chinese city, orchestra music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin (pictured second from right) and orchestra president and CEO Allison Vulgamore (far right) met with Edward Tracy, president and CEO of Sands China Ltd., operator of the Venetian Macao, and his wife, Janet, a graduate of Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster (second and third from left).
With them is former U.S. Ambassador Nicholas Platt (far left), who helped to facilitate the orchestra’s historic 1973 tour of China.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
