The 5th International Chamber Music Festival in Japan
APA will organize the 5th International Chamber Music Festival in March/April 2020. In year 2019 there were 13 players from Europe, USA, Honk Kong and Singapore including several ACMP members. It was an 11 days event including an optional concert tour to Izu-Oshima Island on the last day.
In year 2020 we will have two concerts in Koganei Tokyo and Atami Shizuoka after two days rehearsals each. The optional tour concert to Izu-Oshima Island in Sagami Bay will also be arranged.
We welcome strings, winds and pianists eligible for performing chamber music with two days rehearsals prior to the concerts. Entries can be either preformed or individual basis. We will form groups by mixing foreign participants and Japanese players. In principle everyone plays in two ensembles. The music will be selected based on requests of the participants. There will be no coaching and no solo performance arranged in principle.
During the rehearsals we had a picnic to Koganei Park for watching cherry blossoms in 2109. On the way to Atami we had a tour to Hakone by train, rope way, cable car and pirate ship in Lake Ashinoko.
Rentals of big instruments such as a double base and cello will be arranged.
