She has won prizes in several competitions in Japan, including the Osaka International Music Competition. Kanon moved to England in September 2013. She has completed the first year of the BA Music as well as the International Foundation Year at the University of Southampton, and she led the Southampton University Symphony Orchestra in 2014/15 season. In September 2015 she transferred to the Royal College of Music in London, where she is currently in Year 4 of the BMus and studying with Professor Itzhak Rashkovsky. Kanon’s recent concerto performances include Beethoven’s Violin Concerto and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto (Op.64), both with the Southampton University Sinfonietta.
