HA NOI (VNS) — The Japan Foundation started organising a jazz orchestra for young Asian musicians, and will offer participants the opportunity to participate in rehearsal camps in Tokyo and perform throughout Asia.
Through international exchange and collaboration, the foundation hopes to train rising talents and to encourage them to network internationally.
In the long run, the Asian Youth Jazz Orchestra hopes to become a platform for young musicians to work together on new music and help them launch their careers.
Students, professional musicians and other interested people between 18 and 26 years old (as of September 2015), who live in ASEAN countries, must send their applications and audition files by e-mail to Jun Kawai at jun – firstname.lastname@example.org, before January 5.
