UBE Group Charity Concert

Since 2008, the UBE Group has been inviting the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra to Ube City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, and hosting the UBE Group Charity Concert at Watanabe Okina Memorial Hall to contribute to developing local music culture and nurturing the next generation.

All the proceeds from the concerts are donated to organizations involved in music in Ube City in order to develop local music culture.

In fiscal 2020, the friendship concerts normally held each year around the time of the concert at Ube-kohsan Central Hospital and Yamaguchi University Hospital were cancelled.
