Charity Concerts

Toyota Industries Corporation has been holding concerts since 2008 using music as a vehicle to promote local culture and contribute to the development of the next generation of young people.

The concerts are a way to expose everyone in the community to quality musical performances by world-class musicians while contributing to the development of a richer and more peaceful society. We also want to encourage and inspire high school students in the community who might be interested in pursuing music as a career.

Since 2012, refugees from the Tohoku Earthquake living in Aichi Prefecture have been invited to the concerts in the hope that this will provide a respite from their difficulties.

Since 2010, a portion of the proceeds from these concerts is used to fund our elementary school min-concert visits. More than 10,000 elementary school students in Aichi Prefecture and the areas affected by the Tohoku Earthquake have had the opportunity to listen to music performed by top-class musicians.

Every year, carefully selected musical programs are presented to the delight of both classical music fans and those not so familiar with the classical genre. These intimate live performances continue.
