Music Culture Support


ROHM and Musical Arts

ROHM has a long history of supporting music culture, publishing ‘A Visual History of Music’, an introduction to classical music, soon after its founding in 1965. It was possible to bring joy and comfort to people as there were only 2 specialized music magazines available at the time. In 1991 we established the ROHM Music Foundation, and together continue to engage in activities such as hosting and sponsoring classical concerts to promote and develop music culture.

Music has the power to add color to people’s lives and enrich their hearts. As a corporate citizen, ROHM is committed to creating a rich culture through music.
