Spring 2019 Japan


April 12 – 22, 2019 | 10 days | From $5,995

“As a professional conductor, I have had the privilege of leading orchestras abroad and one of those destinations was Japan. There, I discovered a great dedication to Western symphonic music and a very passionate following. I was most impressed by the Japanese musicians’ great skills, discipline, and deep commitment to this musical art form. Tokyo alone is home of five excellent orchestras including the famous NHK Symphony, which we will attend in a performance of music by R. Strauss, Berlioz and Janacek. We will enjoy two other classical concerts featuring top Japanese orchestras*. Our tour would not be complete without traditional Japanese music which will reveal the finest keepers of century- old folk traditions. Dave Beck and I very much look forward to exploring with you the musical, artistic and architectural beauty of this fascinating country.”

Christophe Chagnard, Artistic Advisor to KING FM’s Travel Club
