What are the purposes of the JVC Benefit Concert?
Every year JVC organizes its annual benefit classical concerts in Tokyo and Osaka with the participation of conductor and soloists coming from all over the world. All the profits from both events will go toward JVC activities in 11 countries in Africa and Asia.
These annual classical concerts, which have been held since 1989, have raised more than 200 million yen and been enjoyed by some 55,000 audiences to date.
- To raise funds to support JVC’s fieldwork.
- To create a greater awareness in Japan of international cooperation and how volunteers working together can make a difference.
For these reasons, the JVC Concert Committee (eight members) and the rest of the JVC staff have been organizing these Benefit Concerts every December for more than 25 years!
