The orchestra invited Kazuhiro Koizumi as the first music director,

In April 2011 the orchestra took the current name and made its new start.
The orchestra announced the appointments of Norichika Iimori as chief conductor,

Besides holding subscription and special concerts,
the orchestra actively promotes music appreciation classes

Our aim is to provide not only classical music but music that stirs the soul
of every person so that the general public will come to know the joy of listening to great music
and attending wonderful concerts.
We hope to provide more opportunity for all to come into close contact with music in their daily lives.
