In celebration of the decade tenure of its Music Director LÜ Jia, the orchestra released two albums in 2022, including Bruckner's Ninth Symphony and a selection of live recordings conducted by LÜ Jia. 

Alongside its concert series, the orchestra has received widespread praise for its international appearances at the Kissingen Summer Music Festival and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and concerts in many cities in Germany, as well as in some countries and regions such as Sydney, Singapore, Seoul, Daegu, Abu Dhabi, Taipei and Macau.
