Cool Takasaki Presents: Classical Music Concert

The next event in the Cool Takasaki series is a classical music concert. Join us for a delightful morning spent listening to piano and violin performances, with a chance to ask questions to the performers after the show! English interpretation will be available during the Q&A portion of the event, but it is also a great chance to practice your Japanese.

What is Cool Takasaki?

Cool Takasaki is a series of TIRS events that highlight the many talented people living and working in Takasaki. Some events are designed so that foreign residents may experience traditional Japanese culture, while others are created for Japanese locals to experience the wealth of foreign culture that can be found right here in Takasaki.

Participants of any Cool Takasaki event agree to take photos and videos that they will later share on their various social media platforms, using hashtags such as #cooltakasaki. This is a great way to show the entire world what fun and exciting new cultural experiences await them in our beloved city!
