The Urahisa Toshihiko Office is a music planning production office.
Music offices typically manage and produce performers, but offices that produce music planning are nearly non-existent within the world of classical music in Japan.
Performers are the so-called “raw material.” Superb planning and programing are essential for bringing out the full extent of the appeal of the raw material and impressing the audience.
This is an example of likening it to the relationship between “raw materials” and “food preparation.”
The Urahisa Toshihiko Office is not limited to only the classical genre. Together with a variety of performers, performance halls and businesses, we hope to turn unseen sounds into tangible emotions and deliver them to as many people as possible in order to create a better future for music culture.
