About IA

Invenzione Armonica(IA) is a chamber orchestra which focuses on music of the Baroque-Classical period. Established in 2005, we have had musical activities in Sendai and Fukushima. IA delivers you a well-ensembled, agile, lively musical experience which traditional large orchestras can’t.

 IA’s way

  1. Without conductor

    We strive to be Active, not Passive. We create our sounds through our discussions and from our communication. There is no conductor in IA, but every musicians must be a conductor for themselves.

  2. Haydn as a lifework

    We have never found a composer who has more intelligence and humor than Haydn. Our goal is to reproduce the enthusiasm of his music.

  3. Zero-top style orchestra

    We perform and are managed like a modern football style “Zero-top”. Everyone is a conductor, and everyone is a manager.



The five stripes represents staff notation and “flag”. As we have no conductors, our sounds are created by succesful communication. The “flag” indicates our direction for this new musical experiment.
