Sapporo Otani University
Otani University has its beginning in 1665, when it was established as a buddhist seminar by the Higashi Honganji. Subsequently, it was reorganized as a modern university in 1901.
Sapporo Otani Universitiy is a college of art. I feel honored, because I give a lecture at such a deep traditional University. I will be talking about the challenge of composers in the society and about the role of music creation in the schools of Berlin.
