Major Events in Tsuyama
With this as a background, the Tsuyama first international All-Round Music Festival was held in 1987 as an event in the northern area of Okayama prefecture in commemoration of the Great Seto Bridge. Many people, groups, and organizations from the northern part of the prefecture participated in the festival. Joint performances by professionals and amateurs evoked a great response.
This festival is now held every three years, aiming at building a new community with music as its key factor, the purpose of the festival is to activate the local area through cultural awareness, to promote interaction between provinces and the central district through music, and to carry out international exchange suitable for a new era.
The theme of this festival has been "For Future Friendship & Musical Art". With Gustav Mahler as its theme composer, the purpose of the festival was to activate the area and encourage exchange between Japan and overseas through the promotion of musical culture. The last three festivals of this "Triennale" were realized in anticipation of the age of internationalization, and received much attention from both inside and outside Japan.
The festival features performances of classical, modern, popular, and traditional music in addition to a series of academic lectures and symposiums.
