The position of Pacific Music Festival 2015 Artistic Director will be taken up by Valery Gergiev. He has previously participated in PMF as Principal Conductor in both 2004 and 2006. The Pacific Music Festival (PMF) is an international educational music festival founded in Sapporo in 1990 by Leonard Bernstein. The heart of PMF is the PMF Academy, an educational program featuring top musicians of the world as faculty, and fostering young musicians chosen through auditions from all parts of the globe.

For roughly 1 month each July, these richly talented Academy members receive instruction on high-level craft from the faculty as well as a wealth of experience, in addition to experiencing international exchange through music, thereby deepening international mutual understanding.
