Port of LA hosts Musicians

Wednesday, December 12, 2007
Taiwan’s Evergreen Symphony Orchestra (ESO) made its American debut on 9 and 10 December in Los Angeles. The 70-piece orchestra, under the direction of its Director of Music and Conductor, Gernot Schmalfuss, traveled to California from Taipei to perform in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Port of Los Angeles, a harbor that is a major port of call for Evergreen Line container ships. The performance on December 9 was held at the passenger ship terminal in San Pedro where a day-long celebration took place for the community, along with attractions for children and other celebratory activities. ESO played the 1812 Overture as its debut performance in the US. Later, with the container ship Ever Unific and stacks of thousands of Evergreen green containers providing a backdrop, there was a sensational fireworks display.
