TOKYO GEIDAI PHILHARMONIA

The Tokyo Geidai Philharmonia is the symphony orchestra of the Department of Orchestra Research at the Tokyo University of Arts. Known as Gei-Phil, the orchestra has its origins in the early twentieth century, and used to be known as Tokyo Music School Orchestra in the pre-war period. It gave the Japanese première of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony in 1918. The orchestra is formed mainly of graduates (soloists, professors and part-time lecturers) from the department of instrumental music. The orchestra hosts regular concerts at the new Sogakudo Concert Hall at the Tokyo Ueno Campus, which include works by students of the department of composition.
