"Mirai wo Kanaderu Ongakukai"
Mirai wo Kanaderu Ongakukai is a music concert Idemitsu has been holding four times a year since 2006. We organize concerts for people living in the area where our refineries and complexes are located. We also give opportunities for young musicians to perform and hold instruments workshops with students at local schools. We further support challenge, growth, and opportunities of demonstrating their abilities for the next generations.
“Mirai wo Kanaderu Ongakukai” (online concert program)
Due to COVID-19, we have canceled this year's “Mirai wo Kanaderu Ongakukai” concerts scheduled to take place at various parts of Japan. Instead, we held online concerts (free) from Saturday, February 27, 2021 to Sunday, March 7, 2021 under the theme of "Though we can't meet, we can still connect."
This online concert program Suite "The Carnival of Animals" performed by Mr. Kyohei Sorita (pianist) and the MLM National Orchestra as well as "Goin’ Home” - Toki Yamani Hiwa Ochite - in which a chorus collaboration that combined audio videos from 108 people and the performance of the MLM National Orchestra was performed.
Idemitsu will support young people's challenges and growth, and opportunities for demonstrating their abilities through the concerts.
After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel all four performances of "Mirai wo kanaderu ongakukai", scheduled this year, due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
We ask for your kind understanding.
