About the Vienna Philharmonic & Suntory Music Aid Fund
After the Great East Japan Earthquake which struck Japan on March 11, 2011, the Vienna Philharmonic pledged a donation of one hundred million yen via Suntory Hall "in hopes of conveying our condolences to our dearest friends in Japan who have been victimized by the earthquake damage." Having built up a bond of trust as a partner with the Vienna Philharmonic through many years of Japan tours by the orchestra, the Suntory Group, too, established a matching fund in April 2012 to indicate its support.
To continuously offer support activities to invigorate not only the affected areas but also all of Japan through music, the fund conducts a grant project under which it awards grants to “Vienna Philharmonic & Suntory Music Aid Award” recipients and a performance project through which it sponsors “Concert for Children” performances.
