Lastly, a message from the music director, Mr. Shinichiro Ikebe.
In Venezuela, a project was started where children from impoverished families were given a chance to be educated through in an orchestra. This resulted in 290,000 youth joining,
and saving them from drug related corruption. An orchestra cannot be performed by just one person alone. By working with each other and making music, they naturally learn to cooperate with one another and learn the social skills necessary to live in an active society. Together with such experience, it is our sincere hope that the children of Setagaya learn to enjoy music, and with that in mind, we put the highest value in the future of the Junior Orchestra.
