ROHM has been an ardent supporter of the musical arts from the very beginning, starting with 'A History of Music in Pictures,' which was issued in 1965 - shortly after ROHM was founded. Later, along with the ROHM Music Foundation, ROHM began focusing on developing and nurturing young musicians, for example by offering scholarship assistance and sponsoring the Kyoto International Music Student Festival that attracts music students from around the world. And ROHM continues to be involved in musical culture by supporting the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy and Kyoto Symphony Orchestra.
In addition, a number of sponsored musicians (ROHM Music Friends) are currently active at home and abroad.
And in 2016 the newly renovated ROHM Theatre Kyoto is scheduled to host a number of world-class performances, including some by ROHM Music Friends.

ROHM Music Foundation
In 1991 ROHM founder Kenichiro Sato established the ROHM Music Foundation in order to ensure continued support for the musical arts. The foundation has carried out a number of business activities aimed at promoting and developing musical culture. In particular, support is provided for young musicians, at home and abroad.
