The Boston Goes to China
1979 | CBS News
Millions of American spines tingled when the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Peking Philharmonic broke into a rousing rendition of Stars and Stripes Forever on the CBS Reports documentary account of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s historic tour of China. A crowd of more than 18,000 Chinese, hearing its first live American concert in more than 30 years, came to its feet, applauding and shouting. This well-told, well-photographed and well-presented program deserves recognition, in the opinion of the Peabody Board, and for this effort, a Peabody Award to CBS News.
