Audience members at the Tokyo Sinfonia’s monthly performances may be aware that Sinfonia programmes are organised into three distinct quarterly series. Each series includes four events a year designed to appeal to a special segment of our general audience “Symphonies for Strings” serenades, followed always by an artists & audience reception, feature surveys of neglected works of the great composers in an adventure of musical exploration. People tell us they love the programmes. “Sinfonia Plus” serenades, followed of course by an artists & audience reception, spotlight distinguished international artists in concert with the Tokyo Sinfonia. The individual appeal of each superb soloist tends to draw a somwhat wider audience. “National Serenade” dinner-concerts feature relaxed evenings during which delightful musical selections by national composers are interspersed with delicious courses of the nation’s cuisine. The casual programmes of food and music appeal to first-timers and regulars alike. In May, for the 50th programme in our national serenade series, we return with pleasure to the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan with the music of Russia, served up beautifully between hearty courses of traditional Russian fare. Dinner-concerts are great fun. It’s a bit difficult to describe our unique dinner-concert programmes — except to note that the dinner-concerts are always very popular with the audience. This series draws the largest number of subscribers. Each time we perform, we notice an entire table (or several) reserved by a party who want to make a truly memorable evening of it.
Recently a company booked a substantial number of seats at the tables for an entire year of dinner-concerts, allocating the seats to the top 10 percent of their regular employees as a corporate incentive. The result? The president of the company told us with a smile, “It was the best thing we ever did.” The menu offers an adventure of new tastes, and the music is carefully selected to complement the flavour of the evening. The Ambassador is invited to greet our dinner-concert audience on behalf of his nation, and our Sinfonia players go around the tables afterwards to make friends with everyone. The Tokyo Sinfonia's Russian Serenade will be another delightful voyage of discovery. It all deserves to be played. It all demands to be heard . Do join us. It’s always special.

Last week, as featured soloist in our Sinfonia Plus serenade, he won the hearts of the enthusiastic audience in Hakuju Hall too. One subscriber described it very well in the following words: “It was magnificent! Nakamura-san was exciting. His facial and body language complimented the music. For the Brahms, he was intense. For the Bach, enjoying himself. For Mozart, in transports of joy. Everything was wonderful.” (03) 3588 0738 Join us on Facebook Follow us on LinkedIn Follow us on Twitter @TokyoSinfonia19 Info: the orchestra of 19!
