About Sendai International Music Competition
Sendai International Music Competition was created by the City of Sendai in 2001 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the city. The Competition is held every three years, aiming to contribute to the global culture of music and to international cultural exchange, through the nurturing of young, talented musicians.
About the Competition’s logo
Depicted at the center of the logo is the musical score for “Kojo no Tsuki” (“The Moon Over the Ruined Castle”). It represents our respect for the writer of its lyrics, Bansui DOI, a famous poet and scholar of English literature from Sendai. It also evokes the image of international connection through music between Sendai and the world.
