Let's Enjoy Gagaku !



Association for Japanese Classical Performing Arts of Gagaku

Gagaku is well known for its long history which extends over a thousand years. It has had a great deal of influence on other Japanese music, yet the opportunity to see and hear Gagaku is very limited for the general public. The Association was established to promote Gagaku and other traditional Japanese music in and out of Japan and has supported many activities at various venues: overseas performances for cultural exchange, workshops and shows at local schools to educate young people, and class seminars for promoting Japanese traditional cultures.

The inaugural concert by the Association will be held as followed:
