30 Years of
Music that Moves Lives

The first Toyota Classics was held in 1990. Since then, Toyota Classics has grown to be more than a commitment to support charities in Asia through classical music.

It is the embodiment of Toyota’s hope and belief that when people move, the world moves. Through tiny steps and massive bounds, we push forward into the great unknown. This is also the foundation of our global initiative, ‘Start Your Impossible’, which began in 2018.

Together with our friends from the London Chamber Orchestra, we invite you to celebrate 30 years of music that moves lives. Performing a repertoire of music that has touched lives across different centuries, we hope that each and every one of you will be inspired to start your impossible at the 30th Toyota Classics.
