Abstract:This study deals with the orchestra's many levels of development and the various growing pains it has experienced on the way to achieving professional status. Of particular concern are the financial struggles the orchestra faced during the difficult economic situation in Japan in the 1990s and the steady improvement in both the quality and quantity of the orchestra's musical and operational activities. Resources for the study have included numerous newspaper and journal articles, personal interviews, written correspondence between the author and conductors, concertmasters, orchestra members, and administrative personnel, and the orchestra's archives in Sendai.
