Welcome to
The Tokyo Sinfonia!

We are renowned for imaginative programs, warm sound, lively expression and a friendly rapport with our audience.


The Tokyo Sinfonia has a fundamental obligation to protect the health and well-being of our players and our precious audience.

Governor Koike has requested that the people of Tokyo refrain from unnecessary gathering during this period of uncertainty, and Prime Minister Abe may invoke the power of the federal government to order a lockdown of the populace in the capitol city. In the meantime we want to safeguard the health of our audience, players and their families by avoiding travel in Tokyo.

As professional musicians however we want to do everything we can to play for our precious audience. We are studying ways to do this.

We have to conclude however that it will take some time for the coronavirus crisis to subside, and for us to make suitable alternate plans. We will keep you posted.In the meantime, please accept our apologies that we will not perform in Tokyo in April.
