Cigna Foundation Sponsors Philadelphia Orchestra’s 40th Anniversary Tour to China

“We’re proud to bring the Orchestra back to China as the 40th anniversary sponsor,” said Jason Sadler, president of Cigna’s Global Individual segment. “Our support pays tribute to The Philadelphia Orchestra’s trailblazing role in fostering harmony in music and culture between China and the United States, and it reflects Cigna’s longstanding service to China.”

The tour, coupled with the first-of-its kind residency, is a full circle moment for The Philadelphia Orchestra. Paying homage to the relationships created by Maestro Eugene Ormandy and the Orchestra when visiting four decades ago, the events and programs planned during the 40th Anniversary Tour will highlight the ongoing commitment of The Philadelphia Orchestra to creating cultural bonds that drive further artistic innovation.

Cigna’s history in China dates back to 1897, when INA, a Cigna predecessor company, became the first American company to write insurance in China. In 1994, Cigna opened an office in Beijing. In 2003, Cigna formed its joint venture in China with China Merchants Bank to sell individual health, life and accident products. In the years that followed, this successful operation – Cigna & CMC Life Insurance Co. – grew into a business that includes individual private medical plans and serves customers with one million policies across nine provinces.
