Naoto Otomo(music director & conductor)
Born in 1950, Naoto Otomo graduated from the Toho Gakuen School of Music
having studied conducting under Seiji Ozawa, Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Tadaaki Odaka and Morihiro Okabe.
His studies took him to Tanglewood where he worked with conductors such as André Previn,
Leonard Bernstein and Igor Markevitch. While still a student at Toho Gakuen,
Naoto Otomo was named Assistant Conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra,
and upon the recommendation of its members, made his debut with the orchestra at the age of 22.
During his career, Naoto Otomo has regularly made appearances with major orchestras
both in Japan and overseas. He is currently Music Director of the Gunma Symphony Orchestra,
Honorary Guest Conductor of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra,
Conductor Laureate of the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra,
and Music Advisor to the Ryukyu Symphony Orchestra. In 2004,
He was appointed as the first Music Director of the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan concert hall,
a post he held for 8 years.
Outside Japan, Naoto Otomo has appeared with the Colorado Symphony,
Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra;
in July 2001 he led the Philharmonia Orchestra on their tour to Japan,
in March 2012 he conducted the opening concert of the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra,
and in June 2012 he appeared as a guest conductor with the Lorraine National Orchestra.
His conducting has won him great acclaim,
and there is much anticipation of future work in both Europe and the United States.
Naoto Otomo is the recipient of the 8th Akio Watanabe Music Foundation Award (2000)
and the 7th Hideo Saito Memorial Fund Award (2008).
Creating new music scenes in which classical and music from other genres collaborate,
Otomo does not shy away from stage productions that stray from established genres
and forms of expression; he is truly an innovative music producer.

Uriel Segal was appointed chief conductor from 1989 to 1997,
Ken Takaseki from 1997 to 2003, Kazuhiro Koizumi as principal conductor from 2003 to 2008.
The orchestra invited Kazuhiro Koizumi as the first music director,
Ryusuke Numajiri as principal guest conductor from April 2008
and celebrated its 20th anniversary under the conductors in 2009.
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,
Alan Buribayev as principal guest conductor from 2014: its 25th anniversary.
Besides holding subscription and special concerts,
the orchestra actively promotes music appreciation classes
aimed at refining the sensibilities of the younger generation, who will be tomorrow's leaders.
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.
We are dedicated to fulfilling our mission to become an orchestra
that is loved and respected by not only classical music lovers but also all the people in every walk of life.
