Objectives of MUSIC FESTIVAL Argerich’s Meeting Point Objectives of MUSIC FESTIVAL
The MUSIC FESTIVAL Argerich’s Meeting Point in Beppu (Beppu Argerich Music Festival), under General Director Martha Argerich and General Producer Kyoko Ito, continues as the core event of the Argerich Arts Foundation, promoting the following three objectives.
It is not only a sincere hope but also an obligation for us to create a society where children, the driving force of the 21st century, can grow up with rich spirits. An important aim of this Music Festival is to foster young people through music by providing children with opportunities to come in contact with high-quality music and by giving learning opportunities to young musicians.
We aim to create a “Meeting Point” where Martha Argerich and musicians from Asia, as well as from around the world, can join together to make this festival the core of music culture in the region by fostering young music lovers in Asia. We create a meeting point (Argerich’s Meeting Point) for people in Asia and around the world through classical music.
The Beppu Argerich Music Festival aims to be a heartwarming “hand-made music festival” created together with the local people. Believing in the power of music, we will continue to create a richer social environment and send out unique music culture to the world from Oita Prefecture, and especially the hot spring resort of Beppu.
