The Tokyo-based Japan Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1956. It is well-known not only for its exquisite performances but also for its contribution in pushing for cultural development through arts education.

Before their first performance in Vietnam in June, JPO performed with renowned Vietnamese pianist Dang Thai Son in a concert held April 18 in Japan.

The non-profit concert has been endorsed by the Japanese Embassy, the Da Nang Union of Friendship Organisations, and the Japan Business Association in Da Nang.
