About the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy
In 2000, Mr. Ken Sato, then-president and current Chairman Emeritus of ROHM Co. Ltd., and conductor Seiji Ozawa founded an educational project - the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy with the objective of nurturing young musicians through opera. One of Ozawa's mentors, Maestro von Karajan, used to say, "Symphony and opera are the two wheels that make the vehicle of music move forward". Ozawa made this his philosophy and puts it into practice once a year with the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy.
Young, talented musicians chosen through auditions to train under conductor Seiji Ozawa and musicians of Saito Kinen Orchestra among others, gather to form the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy Orchestra. The orchestra together in work with world leading professional stage directors, producers and opera singers then, presents the results of its study in opera performance - the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy Opera Project. The Seiji Ozawa Music Academy so far featured 17 opera projects - 11 opera pieces starting with Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro and the symphony orchestra concert of Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C minor “The Resurrection”. In the spring of 2009, the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy Orchestra Project was also launched.
As of its establishment in year 2000, the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy has been continuously supported by semiconductor manufacturer ROHM Co., Ltd and Rohm Music Foundation, who has its headquarters in Kyoto. It is due to this continuous support that as of year 2016 the Academy has made ROHM Theatre Kyoto its production base. As of 2015, the Academy also organises special opera performances - Opera for Children - for the primary school students of Kyoto.
