Animals and toys that speak human languages, wizards that grant wishes, cute Western-style houses, delicious-looking sweets, beautiful princesses and handsome princes... Children, adults, and musicians alike must be thrilled by these dreamy tales.
The 2023 "Benten" main building is a collection of music inspired by fairy tales and fairy tales. On Christmas Eve, why don't you take a moment to let your ears and heart be carried away by this fantastical and colorful world?

---This is a collection of music written in the style of fairy tales and fairy tales.

Benten Hyakudo" is a project started in 2003 as a "gathering place" to challenge ensembles of various compositions together with fellow musicians.
Under the call of a weekend-only viola player (the mastermind of the project), many music lovers, including amateur orchestra members, colleagues and juniors at universities and workplaces, and family members, have joined the project.

Since its inaugural performance in March 2004, the orchestra has held regular performances [at the main building] approximately once a year, although there was a four-year break in the middle of the season. The theme of each performance is different, and the music is characterized by a broad selection of both well-known and obscure pieces.
In parallel, the Annex series (from 2020), which focuses on specific composers and compositions, and the Annex series (from 2022), which specializes in string quartets, are being planned. A wider range of programs can now be accommodated.

Benten" refers to Benzaiten, who is revered as the god of music, eloquence, and wisdom. The name "Hyakkodo" is a reference to the department store that sells everything, a place where a wide variety of programs can be realized, and a gathering place for amateur musicians (i.e., "hima-jin").
