Galaxy Entertainment Group has announced its role as presenting sponsor of Japan’s largest outdoor classical music festival, STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL ‘19.
STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL ‘19 will take place at the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse this Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September 2019. A wide variety of young and talented Japanese classical musicians will perform a diverse repertoire of classical songs at the festival as well as collaborations of animation songs alongside an orchestra.
The event, which is expected to attract an audience of over 10,000, will provide spectators an opportunity to appreciate classical music performances in a large and relaxing open space suitable for all the family to enjoy, Galaxy said.
This sponsorship follows GEG’s support of the Monaco Boys Choir Tour to Japan in 2018 and the Opera de Monte-Carlo’s visit to Tokyo in 2017.
Galaxy said that by promoting such events it aims to provide a stage for young Japanese musicians and performers to showcase their remarkable talents as well as broaden the appeal of classical music and cultural entertainment among local communities throughout Japan.
“STAND UP! CLASSIC FESTIVAL ‘19 is a wonderful opportunity for us to support young and promising Japanese classical musicians and bring rich cultural entertainment to local communities,” said Galaxy Entertainment Group Japan’s Chief Operating Officer, Ted Chan.
“These musicians are the future of Japan’s classical music industry and along with our partners from the Principality of Monaco we sincerely hope they will one day be able to showcase their talents overseas. We also look forward to giving them a stage to perform in any IR we develop in Japan in the future. GEG will continue to support a wide variety of music, cultural and sporting events by bringing the world’s foremost entertainment to Japan and by introducing Japanese entertainment to the world.”
Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, GEG’s strategic partner in its bid to enter the Japan market, has also been contributing to local community development by supporting music events including jazz and dance festivals and opera performances.
The festival starts at 10:30 and ends at 20:20 on both Saturday and Sunday at the Special Event Area of Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse.
