Slovakian cellist Ludovit Kanta plans to celebrate his 20th anniversary in Japan with a special concert in his adopted hometown of Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture.

Born in Bratislava, 53-year-old Kanta studied cello at Bratislava Conservatory and the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. Then, after performing as principal cellist with the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra for eight years, in 1990 he took that position — which he still holds — at the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa (OEK), which was founded in 1988. Besides orchestral performances at the OEK, he has also performed solo recitals and at chamber-music concerts in both Japan and Slovakia.
