Founded by people including Akeo Watanabe in June 1956, the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the leading orchestras in Japan with 60 years of history. Its highly acclaimed, once-in-a-lifetime performances are the result of the strong bond between the musicians and their passion for music. The orchestra’s educational and community scheme, Music Forest, has continued to open up the relationship between the orchestra and society. Attracting attention for its diverse and innovative activities, the outreach projects include sustained engagement with areas hit by natural disasters, development of new educational programs such as music workshops, and partnerships with local government offices such as Suginami ward as well as universities, music halls, art museums, developers, and non-profit organizations.
