- Notice -
Due to the Chinese government's new policy regarding the coronavirus, the trip to Japan by Nian Liu, professor at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and one of the faculty of the Tamba Sasayama Viola Master Class, has been canceled.
Ryo Oshima, the pricipal violist of the Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra,will give lessons, as replacement.
Public lessons will be held as planned, and the concert
on Sunday, March 29. held by The Imai Viola Quartet
will also go ahead as scheduled. Wenting Kang, who is also Chinese and lives in Spain, will come to Japan from Madrid, so she will be able to participate without any issues.
We hope that you look forward to the first Tamba Sasayama Viola Master Class.

The viola is an instrument that plays a key role in orchestral and chamber music performances, handling the middle range of sound to link other instruments and impart depth and graciousness to overall acoustic.
This workshop allows viola players to come together to further explore the possibilities
of this instrument.
