School Concerts

“It is so important for people at a young age to be invited to embrace classical music and opera.” — Luciano Pavarotti

Since its foundation in 1963, Min-On has offered a diverse range of non-profit public-service programs designed to cultivate music appreciation in Japan and around the world. The Min-On School Concert Program was inaugurated in 1973 at the founder’s proposal to contribute to the emotional development of school children at schools in the remote area of Shibetsu city, Hokkaido. Since then, Min-On has provided admission-free concerts at primary and secondary schools throughout Japan offering younger generations the opportunity to experience a rich diversity of live music by premier artists from around the world. To date, more than 1.2 million students in over 3,800 schools across Japan have benefited from Min-On School Concerts over the last 38 years. Min-On has also donated CDs and records to numerous schools throughout Japan.
