Cancellation of appearance of Serge Zimmerman at Opening Concert

Due to physical condition of the performer, we have to cancel the appearance of Serge Zimmerman (violin) at 9/9 (Sun) 15:00 Opening Concert. With this sudden change, we are very sorry for the audiences who were looking forward to it. Instead of Serge Zimmerman’s performance, Gen Yokosaka(vc) and Tomoki Kitamura (pf) will perform Debussy: Cello Sonata D minor. Thank you for your understanding.
