I wanted to do it, "he said, and introduced a number of responses he received during his on-site lessons and concerts.

In 3, as the end of the project, we recruited amateur musicians from the prefecture and held "Nagano Special Concert 2021" to co-star with fellow orchestras.Satoshi Ishii, an oboe player who participated in the event, said, "After the entire orchestra rehearsal, I had time to practice independently for each instrument.

For art, curators from different careers and affiliations formed a network across cities, towns and villages, enhanced each other through discussions, collaborated, and planned and implemented the "Symbism" exhibition that introduces the art scene in Shinshu four times. ..Mr. Nagaaki Otake, who was the chairman of the working group, said, "When Mr. Motoe took office, he said," I want a team because I am a director, "and curators from the prefecture gathered to form a working group. I think there were two aims. One is to introduce artists who are related to Shinshu in order to inform the rich art of Nagano prefecture both inside and outside. The other is to encourage curators in the prefecture. It is to create a system that meets and stimulates each other. We would like to continue this cooperation by inheriting Mr. Motoe's wishes. "

Rieko Koyama, who is also the bereaved family of the 2nd artist selection committee, the 4th exhibiting artist, and the exhibiting artist Yoshikazu Komatsu, said, "The curator is a star scattered throughout the prefecture, and it becomes a constellation called symbism to illuminate the artist. I think he put it out. I sincerely hope that the constellation of symbism, which was born through the efforts of many people, will grow into a larger nebula. "
