“INAMORI Music Day” Program Starts

(c) Yoshikazu Inoue

The Inamori Foundation announced the launch of “INAMORI Music Day,” a program to promote culture and art, working together with the City of Kyoto Symphony Orchestra and featured artists. This program was born from the desire to provide opportunities for the citizens and students to enrich their lives by rediscovering the beauty of culture and art.

Since its foundation, the Inamori Foundation has developed its activities based on the beliefs of its founder that the future of humanity can be assured only when there is a balance between scientific development and the enrichment of the human spirit. The idea is also reflected in the fact that “Kyoto Prize,” an international prize representing Japan, consists of the field of arts and philosophy as well as science and technology. So far we have taken opportunities for activities to promote culture and arts, but this program has been launched so that we can continuously develop such activities.

On November 3, the Culture Day of every year, we hold a concert by the City of Kyoto Symphony Orchestra and guest artists. Also, we will plan events such as concerts and lessons to create opportunities for more people to encounter music.
