Mai Tategami


I am very pleased to welcome you as a member of the New Japan Philharmonic.
Before I knew it, music was always by my side. Sometimes they encourage me, give me courage, help me with my happiness and sorrow, and before I know it, my energy springs up...
The concert venue and music are once-in-a-lifetime encounters, but I would like to continue creating irreplaceable moments with everyone who came and the orchestra. I hope it will be one of your wonderful memories.
