The PMF Orchestra consists of young musicians between the ages of 18 and 29 who are selected through auditions. Every summer, distinguished conductors and artists, including musicians from internationally renowned orchestras of Europe and the USA such as the Wiener Philharmoniker, Berliner Philharmoniker, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Chicago Symphony Orchestra provide guidance to these musicians. Concerts showcasing the orchestra’s achievements are presented not only in Sapporo and other cities in Hokkaido, but also in other metropolitan areas such as Tokyo. To date, more than 3,600 young musicians from 77 countries and regions have been members of the PMF Orchestra, and many of these alumni have joined major professional orchestras around the world and/or are active as soloists.
