In alignment with Carnegie Hall’s mission to bring the transformative power of music to the widest possible audience, Notables Japan was launched in November 2015 as the Hall’s first-ever overseas philanthropic group in support of its education and social impact programs. Notables Japan was borne out of and inspired by its New York sister program, Notables, made up of young music lovers who support music and music education.
Notables Japan is expanding Carnegie Hall’s world-class programs in Japan, and hosts special music events to inspire the next generation of music lovers and music education supporters.
