“It is times like these especially that I wanted to deliver music.
I am very disappointed that I cannot personally attend this time, but am glad that we are able to hold a concert in Okushiga again this year.
I invite you to look forward to the performances of the young musicians who have flourished at the Okushiga academy.”
President of Ozawa International Chamber Music Academy Okushiga
