Message from Yutaka Sado

Hello, I’m Yutaka Sado, the Artistic Director of Hyogo Performing Arts Center.
This hall has been running as a “Theater For Everyone” for over 15 years.
Sadly, under this COVID-19 crisis, members of Hyogo Performing Arts Center Orchestra cannot even gather on the stage.
All the musicians including our orchestra members and myself are eager to reach you with music.
HPAC members performed individually from home following my conduct in the movie.
Please enjoy “When the Lilacs Bloom Again” (Wenn der weiße Flieder wieder blüht / Sumire no Hana Sakukoro).
Then I would really love to suggest you to play your parts together with us at home. Record a movie of your performance and send us your file!
You can hum, dance, or clap your hands. However you wish! It’s up to you.
After the performance, put your mask back on and give yourself and everyone a big applause!
We are going to add your video clips to this video and will upload new version, every now and then.
We wish the earliest possible ending of the epidemic.
And hope that HPAC is always be the “Theater For Everyone”.

Yutaka Sado
Artistic Director
