Q & A with Laura Best gig you've ever performed at? Touring six cities between Shanghai and Beijing with the Ontario Festival Symphony Orchestra (Jerome Summers conducting) was filled with the excitement of discovering the Great Wall and with challenges of crossing major streets to find coffee. The audience in filled halls was thrilled to hear an orchestra, many for the first time, and their personal thanks to orchestra members was moving.
