The Amateur Music Players’ Association, Japan (APA) International Chamber Music Festival 2023 (ICMF2023) provides a venue at which both overseas and Japanese amateur players can participate in cultural exchange through music. Come to Japan, see the cherry blossoms, and enjoy playing, performing and socializing with Japanese amateur players!
All amateur chamber music players are welcome–strings, winds and pianists. Both pre-formed groups and individuals can be accommodated. We will create Festival ensembles by mixing overseas participants and Japanese players. Rentals of big instruments such as double bass and cello can be arranged.
The Festival will rehearse briefly and play concerts in three different cities– Tokyo, Hakone, and Atami. In Hakone there will also be an ACMP-supported Play-in. Please note that the emphasis of the Festival is on playing, and rehearsal time will be limited; see our website for details and to apply.
