On May 24, 2017, Tokyo University of the Arts (TUA) held a commemorative concert at the Sogakudo Concert Hall jointly with the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna (MDW: Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien). TUA has enjoyed a long-term partnership with MDW and joined in celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Austrian university. The concert was also positioned as part of the events for the 130th anniversary of TUA as well as an international joint project subsidized by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Japan (MEXT) under the Enforcing the Function of National Universities scheme.

The concert opened with welcome remarks by TUA Faculty of Music Vice Dean Professor Fumiaki Kono, followed by greetings by Dr. Christian Meyer, Vice Rector of MDW. Dr. Meyer referred to the long history of exchange between TUA and MDW saying that the partnership is as old as 130 years since Tokyo Music School, the predecessor of the Faculty of Music at TUA, was established following the models of foreign music institutions including MDW. “I hope our long-time partnership will be as thriving as ever before.” He stated in his speech.

The Giocoso String Quartet, which consisted of students from MDW, played a leading role at the concert. TUA students who performed with them were Sylvia Kimiko Krutz, an exchange student of piano from MDW, Natsumi Tsuboi (Violin), Karen Kido (Violin), Mizuki Takanashi (Viola), and Yoshiaki Kanie (Violoncello).

All the players went through intensive rehearsals for three days prior to the concert, which resulted in a great performance that fascinated over six hundred audience in the hall. The concert made a big success, meeting the objective of celebrating the long histories of both institutions.
