With the first performance of the three-week 2016 Asia Tour just days away, members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra spent time rehearsing and getting acclimated to their new surroundings. Between rehearsals and other preparations, musicians caught up with friends or took in some sights of the city, including Taipei’s famous night markets, which open at dusk and run until midnight.
