Our Vision

Our Vision

"Classical music is too over my head."
Not a few people may feel so, especially people who are not used to listening classical music. Many orchestras have tried to break down this "wall" by setting some themes, such as Mahler Day or Beethoven Zyklus, and such trials have been interesting for many listeners. We believe that our next challenge is to encourage those who would not think of going to concert in their daily life to become fans of classical music.

From this belief we have the following visions: a) to perform with other art forms in addition to music, b) to plan concerts with accessible messages, and c) to build a formal administrative structure to support players and give them more time and flexibility to work on their performances. With these, we try to reach not only fans of classical music but also people who would not think to go to a concert regularly.

Amateur orchestras must have the potential to do something more. Promoting values and needs through music. Promoting collaboration and connections to all people through music. We believe that such visions will lead slowly but surely to the promotion of the culture of classical music.
