Ark Nova

For the first time in Tokyo: Lucerne Festival Ark Nova, September 19-4 October 2017

For its fourth season, the mobile concert hall known as the Lucerne Festival Ark Nova will be constructed on site in a park in Tokyo Midtown in the Japanese capital of Tokyo, where it will be in operation from 19 September to 4 October 2017, immediately before the start of the upcoming Asian tour by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.

As has been the case in the first three years, social engagement will play a significant role. The planned offerings call for educational projects for children and youth as well as concert programs ranging from traditional Japanese music to European classical and jazz at low ticket prices. As in previous years, musicians from the Lucerne Festival Orchestra will perform in the Ark Nova this year, as will, for the first time, an ensemble of the Lucerne Festival Alumni. Details of the programming will be announced at a later date.
