The Japan Federation of Composers Inc. (JFC)



   When established in 1962, we started as a union of composers, but later changed our name

   to the Japan Federation of Composers (JFC), which incorporated in 1983.

   The JFC's primary objectives are to promote the activities of composers, to improve the condition

   of composers and to contribute to society through musical activities.

   Most of the JFC's activities are supported by membership fees and subsidies from various

   foundations and organisations.


   Our activities are numerous and include:



        "Japanese Composers", "JFC Independent", "Asian Tradition / Asian Contemporary",

    "To the Children – Kid's Box Piano concert" are all held annually.


   Competition "JFC Award Competition"

    This competition began in 2001 and has been held every other year since 2010.

    The 10th JFC Award Competition will be held in 2019, and the concert of finalists will be 

    held in November in cooperation with Toppan Hall.



     Published four times annually.


   International Exchange

       Exchange concerts have been held in South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia in

     the past.

    The next concert in Thailand is planned for August 2019.

    The JFC is an official member of the Asian Composers League (ACL) and an associated

     member of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM).



       "Asian Composers in the 20th Century" (English/Japanese) was published in 2001.

       The concert and exhibition "Arts with Disabilities" was held in 2017, supported by the

    Agency  for Cultural Affairs.


   International Festivals

       ACL festivals were held in 1974, 1990, 2000, 2003, and 2014. Two additional festivals were

            held in 2010 and 2017 as Special Events of the ACL in Tokyo.
