YAMAHA INTERNATIONAL HIGHLIGHT CONCERT 2023 Comes to Ciputra Artpreneur Theater in December

Yamaha Corporation announced it will host the 2023 Yamaha International Highlight Concert in Jakarta, a concert featuring Yamaha Music School students from more than 40 countries and regions around the world, in Jakarta, Indonesia on Sunday, December 3.

The first Yamaha International Highlight Concert was held in 2019 in Singapore, as a combination of the Asia Pacific Junior Original Concerts, Yamaha Electone Festival, Yamaha Junior Piano Competitions, and other concerts featuring students who have participated in various Yamaha Music School activities. In addition to featuring classical works on piano, original works composed by Junior Original Concert*1 student performers, and improvisations*2, the concert will bring together students studying pop music such as singing, drumming, and more. A number of students will perform improvisational performances in relay format, using their own musicality to develop short motifs (melodies) of approximately two bars, gathered from the audience. This improvisational performance will provide a glimpse of the benefits of a comprehensive music education that "fosters creativity," which is one of the principles of the Yamaha Music School philosophy.

This fifth event will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and will be the first face-to-face concert in the last four years, after the second, third and fourth events were held online.

The event's main visual features two warriors from traditional Indonesian puppet theater called "wayang", along with one of Indonesia's famous batik patterns called "mega mendung", which is depicted with a cloud motif. The design represents our hope that the fervor in Jakarta will be even higher for the first in-person concert in four years.
