PMF Founded by Leonard BernsteinPMF MUSIC PARTNER 2016 June vol. 20

The PMF 2016 T-Shirt

The design for the PMF 2016 T-shirt, to be worn by participating artists, Academy members, and staff, has been released!
The “under the baton” design evokes PMF-founder Leonard Bernstein’s vision for musical education - a core principle of the festival - being passed on through Valery Gergiev and John Axelrod. What Axelrod and Gergiev pass on to the young musicians under their batons at PMF 2016 is sure to inspire both performers and audience alike.
The simplicity of the design, by Sapporo-based graphic designer and art director Mr. Yusuke Momma, makes for perfect summer attire on its own, indoor or outdoor, and even looks nice with a cardigan or jacket.

A Conductor’s Story

~PMF Educational Seminar with John Axelrod~

As a teenager, John Axelrod studied conducting with Leonard Bernstein - an experience that surely had great impact on his life. Now he will lead the PMF Orchestra as PMF Principal Conductor in July, and the NHK Symphony Orchestra in August. Hear his story at the PMF 2016 Educational Seminar!
This seminar is a valuable opportunity to hear a conductor speak of music. While the excitement of the performance still lingers in the air, we may just learn something new about Bernstein. Don’t miss it!
