Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra Concert

Logo of the Japan Foundation Japan-Russia Cultural Exchange Project 2012

The Japan Foundation organizes the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra's tour in Russia taking place from March 27 to April 1, 2013.
Since the orchestra gave its first charity concert on March 26, 2011, just two weeks after the Great East Japan Earthquake, they have cooperated with many other musicians and continuously engaged in recovery efforts encouraging people in the devastated areas through "the power of music". This Russia tour is organized to express a sincere gratitude for the supports from all over the world extended to Japan. The orchestra, as a representative of Japanese people, also aims to show overseas how people in the devastated areas are currently trying to recover as receiving the encouragement from music.
Welcoming the Japanese soloist Mayuko Kamio, the first prize winner for the violin section in the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition, the programme is associated with the themes of "recovery" and "Japanese culture".
Related programs include several charity events, such as screenings of the charity concerts, photo exhibitions, mini concerts, and lectures.
