Youth symphony to play Yokohama

The public is invited to attend the 2004 performance of the Japan Youth Symphony Orchestra March 28 at Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall.

The concert will be the culmination of an annual four-day music camp, sponsored by Toyota Corp., that showcases young musicians from amateur orchestras across the country. This year's camp will bring together about 170 musicians at the Shonan Kokusai-mura Center from March 25 to 28 at Hayama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

With the help of 17 professional musicians, including Akihiro Miura, concert master of the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, they will practice Ambroise Thomas's "Overture for Opera 'Raymond, ou Le secret de la reine," Zoltan Kodaly's "Dances of Galanta," and Dmitri Shostakovich's "Symphony No. 5."

The concert will start at 2 p.m. in Minato Mirai's big hall.

Anyone interested should send a postcard to:

Dai 20-kai Toyota Orchestra Camp-jimukyoku, c/o Hirofumi Takeguchi, 4-7-21 Shirohata, Fujisawa-shi, Kanagawa-ken 251-0051.

The sender must write name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and number of tickets wanted.

The deadline is March 21.
