Young Concert Artists
Festival Week 2013

2013.5.31 FRI - 6.6 THU

INTRODUCTION

“Young Concert Artists Festival Week at CHANEL NEXUS HALL, Tokyo 2013” will be held from May 31 through June 6, 2013.
This festival started in 2006 as the collaboration between Young Concert Artists (YCA) which is the nonprofit organization in U.S. and CHANEL NEXUS HALL. With your patronage, the festival will mark its eighth anniversary this year. The supremely talented young artists of YCA will visit Japan once again from countries all over the world. In addition, distinguished Japanese artists who began their careers with YCA will participate in the festival with their young colleagues. Their exciting performances together will resonate throughout CHANEL NEXUS HALL.

Since its opening, CHANEL NEXUS HALL has presented the classical concert series, “CHANEL Pygmalion Days” as a project cultivating young musicians. YCA Festival Week was initiated by the internationally-recognized architect and designer of the CHANEL Ginza Building, Mr. Peter Marino who also had served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for Young Concert Artists whose mission echoes the philosophy of “Pygmalion Days”.
As we invite you to enjoy these chamber music concerts with the brilliant musicians of Young Concert Artists, we hope to share the spirit of supporting young talent as well.
