As part of the 50th anniversary event, the KCG Group will hold a violin recital as follows.I would like to see not only students but also the general public.Admission is free, so please apply in advance.

The violin to be performed at this recital is “Miracle of Rikuzentakata City” where violin doctor Muneyuki Nakazawa and Mr. Kimiko (this time player) and his wife supported the people in the affected areas withstand the tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake. “Ipponmatsu” was picked up from driftwood, and was made with the wish of “if you want to convey the memories of the earthquake and hope for reconstruction”.All performers are active internationally, including performing at concerts around the world.

Since its founding, the University has incorporated general education subjects into the curriculum for the purpose of cultivating not only specialized skills but also students' intellect and sensibility. Various cultural lectures, classical music concerts, and traditional art appreciation events have also been held. .
