In addition to a variety of subscription concerts and special concerts, TMSO is also actively engaged in efforts to support Tokyo residents, by giving concerts for schools (over 50 annually), for welfare institutions and for physically challenged persons, by visiting islands as well as by being involved in outreach activities. TMSO has received much international acclaim as the “Music Ambassador of Capital Tokyo” through overseas performances in Europe, North America and Asia. In November 2015, TMSO brought a tour in Europe under the baton of Kazushi Ono, which was highly acclaimed.
