To all customers who purchased tickets for Shibuya Afternoon Concerts

As we enter Step 3 of the Tokyo roadmap for mitigating the city's request for self-restraint (less than 1,000 people indoors and half the capacity), we are now able to perform our Shibuya Afternoon Concert from July, with two performances held on the same day.

We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding of the changes and the items listed below.

We have provided in the form your option to consider unspent tickets a donation toward TPOs ability to share your love for classical music.

Since late February, all our concerts have been either cancelled or postponed. As performance fees are almost all the source of our revenue, we are facing a survival crisis.
Your passion for supporting the TPO and our dedicated musicians will make a huge difference.
