Going back to where it all began

Artistic director Kazuki Yamada aspires to take listeners to “the heart of music” for the 2021 edition of this event. In order to do this, the concert will focus on commemorating the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven.

Melodies from the orchestra will be heard far and wide as the Philharmonic has links with schools and hospitals. Having collaborated with the Department of Education, the orchestra has created a teaching programme adapted for all ages. Children will be able to learn about different types of instruments, as well as concerts. In addition to this, patients at the Princess Grace Hospital will have concerts performed for them all year round.
