The Myanmar National Symphony Orchestra and Japan Concert will be performing together this year. If you are a classical music enthusiast or someone who wants to experience it for the first time, this event will be a great opportunity to grow in your love for classical music.
Every year the Japan Foundation continues to send Japanese musicians to Myanmar to assist and train the Myanmar National Symphony Orchestra. 100 Japanese musicians have visited Myanmar since 2013, and have held 18 training sessions.
The event, “Myanmar National Symphony Orchestra Concert,” will be held twice in 2019. Two concerts will show how they have progressed over the years. One concert will be preformed in Yangon, and the other in Nay Pyi Taw.
This year will be a special concert since they will be a commemorating Mekong-Japan Exchange Year 2019, and the opening of the Japan Foundation in Yangon. In addition, four musicians skilled in Japanese traditional music, as well as musicians of Western classical art music will be playing at the two events. Musical collaborations can be enjoyed such as a Western orchestra, Japanese traditional, and Myanmar traditional musicians, as well as their regular Western classic repertoire.
Both events are free to the public, the first will take place in Yangon at The National Theatre of Yangon on Friday, January 18, 2019. Doors open at 18:00.
The second will be in Nay Pyi Taw at the Myanmar International Convention Center II (MICC2) on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Doors open at 18:00.
