Important Notice, Cancellation of MMCJ2020

17th April 2020

Dear All,

This is to inform you with great regret that due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, MMCJ unfortunately had to cancel this year’s Music Maters Course Japan 2020, as there is no certainty whether we can welcome our participants from abroad and to proceed all the aspects of the course.

We were absolutely determined to hold the MMCJ 2020, as this year marks 20th anniversary since we started as MMCK in Kazusa Academia Park in Kisarazu, Chiba, Japan.
However, we had to make a difficult decision to suspend this year’s edition.
To the participants, the audiences, Yokohama-City, Minato Mirai Hall, all the sponsors and supporters, we are deeply grateful for your understanding and cooperation.

Regarding the funds and donations we received from the sponsors and supporters, we will contact you individually.
MMCJ is considering to sustain this year’s activities in alternative way, we will inform you once all is decided in due course.

MMCJ will make further effort to provide the best edition in next year, and we thank you for your continued support.
We sincerely wish you all the best and very much look forward to seeing you after overcoming this global crisis.
