Le Chateau Kaminoyama 2023

  • img

Le Chateau Kaminoyama started in 2016 and will be held for the 7th time this year.

This is a music festival that fills the city’s Kaminoyama Onsen area with music.

Promising young performers gather and gain practical experience on stage at town concerts and gala concerts.

Also, for the first time, they will be performing together with local high school students.

The public lessons will be held under the guidance of Kenji Nakagi, one of Japan’s best cellists, with the cooperation of pianist Miho Nagata (from Kaminoyama City).

Please feel free to visit us.
