Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra, a German ensemble led by Japanese conductor Toshiyuki Kamioka, will perform the music of Richard Wagner for a Fukuoka audience on Oct. 15.

The orchestra, based in Wuppertal, western Germany, is comprised of 88 musicians and has nearly 150 years of history behind it. Major artists such as Clara Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Max Bruch have all played with the group, and a number of world-famous conductors began their careers in Wuppertal, including Erich Kleiber, Otto Klemperer and Hans Weisbach.
