This music education program aimed at elementary school children, developed by New York's Carnegie Hall, was implemented in Japan for the first time at PMF 2013. Children, having learned the music in classes prior to the concert, will enjoy listening to the PMF Orchestra along with imagery and narration presented by the MC. It promises to be a truly eye-opening experience for the participating Sapporo City elementary school sixth graders.
