“We are all different and we are all wonderful!”
From “A Bird and A Bell and I” by Misuzu Kaneko
The aim of ‘The Very Special Music Festival’ is to remove barriers in hearts of people, both with and without disabilities. Music has the power to do just that.
This festival was first held in 2001at Sendai City.
Some performers danced, others sang or played instruments; All an expression of the ‘Power’.
Since then, this festival has spread to other cities in Japan, providing thousands of performers to freely express their musical arts.
We believe that ‘The Very Special Music Festival’ has the power to change our societies.
