About "SUNTORY Presents Beethoven's 9th with a Cast of 10,000"

Every year in early December, 10,000 chorus members gather at the Osaka-Jo Hall to sing Beethoven's "Symphony No. 9, Ode to Joy". It is one of the largest concerts of its kind and has continued for 38 years since 1983 without interruption.
The General Director and Conductor Yutaka Sado is a world-renowned conductor who has served as Music Director of the Tonkünstler Orchestra, Austria's oldest orchestra with over 110 years of history, since 2015.

In addition to Japanese choirs, international participants from all over the world including Germany, Austria, USA, Korea and others have been taking part in this annual concert over the years.

Suntory Holdings Limited is one of the global leading beverage companies and has been the official main sponsor of the concert since its beginning in 1983.
