ANNOUNCEMENT OF CANCELLATION OF THE APPEARANCE OF BERTIE BAIGENT
Bertie Baigent, who was scheduled to perform at the 19th Tokyo International Music Competition for Conducting Debut Concert, is unable to travel and perform in Japan due to immigration restrictions related to the new coronavirus infection.
For that reason, Satoshi Yoneda, who received honourable mentions at the 19th Tokyo International Music Competition for Conducting, will stand in, and the conducting piece will change accordingly.
We sincerely apologize for the sudden change in conductors. We thank you in advance for your kind understanding and forgiveness.
