The Lobby Concert 25 started as part of Mécénat activities in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Hotel Okura Tokyo in 1987. We provide our lobby space for free concerts on the 25th of every month to support musicians’ activities. The Lobby Concert has been supervised by Mr. Naoto Otomo since the hotel’s 50th anniversary in 2012 to make up programs. We took the opportunity of the 55th anniversary to establish the Hotel Okura Tokyo Cultural Fund in the hope that exchanges through corporate patronage will create a prosperous future. Donation collected at the lobby concert venue will be donated to organizations that conduct activities specializing in "music".
Naoto Otomo graduated from the Toho Gakuen School of Music.
He was named Assistant Conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra, and upon the recommendation of its members, made his debut with the orchestra at the age of 22.
He is currently Honorary Guest Conductor of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Conductor Laureate of the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, and Music Director of the Ryukyu Symphony Orchestra. In 2004, he was appointed as the first Music Director of the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan concert hall, a post he held for 8 years.
Naoto Otomo is the recipient of the 8th Akio Watanabe Music Foundation Award (2000) and the 7th Hideo Saito Memorial Fund Award (2008).
