The sixth Europe Tour 2019

11/03/2019

Japan Philharmonic Orchestra and Chief Conductor Pietari Inkinen are planning Europe tour in April 2019, which will be the first Europe tour in 13 years for JPO. It will be the first time for the orchestra to visit Finland, and other visits include cities in Germany, Austria, and the United Kingdom.

    Finland is our musical “origin” as JPO was founded by a renowned conductor Akeo Watanabe, whose mother was Finnish. As 2019 is the centenary year of the diplomatic relationship between Finland and Japan, we would like to help deepening and expanding the good relationship between Finland and Japan through this tour.

    In addition, JPO has put great importance in connecting with people and society through educational and regional activities and also through over 230 activities in the areas affected by the earthquake in Japan. We would like to deliver our warm “JPO Sound” to Europe and at the same time would like to introduce voices from these affected areas where they wish more people to know the current condition.
