<Summary of the Tokyo Symphony Concert Series>

Subscription Concerts at Suntory Hall (ten performances)

The first performance was held in 1947 as the ‘Toho Symphony Orchestra’, the predecessor to the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. This is a concert series where the ‘present and future’ of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra can be heard no matter what era.

Kawasaki Subscription Concerts at Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall (five performances)

These concert series are held at Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall, now known worldwide for its first-rate acoustics. This is where the TSO are based, and where we bring to our audiences five performances selected from the Suntory Hall Subscription Concerts.

Tokyo Opera City Series at Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall (five performances)

Since its start in 1998, internationally noted conductors and artists, including the TSO conductors, are the first to appear in Japan at this concert series. Saturday afternoon performances begin from 2 pm, with the added appeal that senior citizen discounts are offered only at this concert series.

Masterpiece Classics Series at Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall (ten performances)

Concert series of the standard repertoire performed on weekend afternoons since 2004. This concert series enjoys high popularity where many masterpieces performed or conducted by maestros can be enjoyed.
