By Kazumasa Ikeda / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff WriterMITO — The Mito Chamber Orchestra (MCO), for which Seiji Ozawa serves as general director, will celebrate its 100th regular concert series in October.
The resident orchestra of the Art Tower Mito comprises accomplished instrumentalists, including internationally successful soloists and principal members of orchestras. During the past 27 years, the MCO has experienced generational changes while taking what Ozawa describes as "an ensemble close to the pinnacle of chamber music" to higher levels.
The 76-year-old maestro's physical strength has declined since he underwent surgery for esophagus cancer in 2010, after which he was diagnosed with pneumonia three times.
