Suntory Hall will next month welcome students from New York’s renowned Juilliard School of Music as part of the hall’s Rainbow 21 educational program. Held annually since 2004, the program aims to provide Japanese students with a chance to experience the whole process of concert-making, from planning, producing and promoting to performing.

This year’s guests, the New Juilliard Ensemble (NJE) student chamber orchestra, founded in 1993, appear under the auspices of Rainbow 21 International, an initiative launched in 2008 to invite students from overseas music colleges to support their Japan debut concert, as well as to take part in workshops and other activities with Japanese students.
