Support for the Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto (Japan)

Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto

To contribute to the flourishing of music and the arts, Seiko Epson has since 1992 been a special corporate sponsor of the Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto1, a nearly month-long classical music festival held annually in the city of Matsumoto, in Nagano, Japan. In addition, for more than a decade we have invited children from elementary and special needs schools in Nagano prefecture to Concert for Children. These concerts, which feature young performers, are part of the festival's educational program. For children who have few opportunities to listen live orchestras, the Concert for Children program can spark an interest in classical performances.

1 The festival will be renamed the "Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival," beginning from the 2015 performances.
