“Terry” Terajima in 1971 and has since promoted many
musical artists from various genres in Japan and Asia.
Early concerts began by bringing many traditional Japanese
artists to California, introducing the culture and soul of
Japan to the United States as well as giving Japanese
Americans an opportunity to see some of the biggest artists
from their homeland.
After becoming an established producer and promoter in
California, Pacific Music began promoting concerts in Japan
in the late seventies with artists such as the late Perry
Como, The Manhattan Transfer, as well as Anita Baker,
Patti LaBelle, Kenny Rogers and Gregory Hines in the

the Asia to the west, they expanded their reach into the
classical world with such artists as Mikhail Baryshnikov, and
Van Cliburn, as well as Mirella Freni and Sarah Brightman

musical leaders grew to include such artists as George Shearing, Chaka Khan and Shirley MacLaine. José
Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Diana Ross.

concerts and has proudly promoted The Three Tenors concerts in Japan in 1996, 1999 and in 2002 for the
World Cup. PME also brought together opera’s most illustrious duet artists, Plácido Domingo and Mirella

In 2003, Pacific Music was given the opportunity to exclusively promote and represent the rising young tenor,
Salvatore Licitra in Asia. He has performed concert tours in Taiwan, Japan, and China; his popularity
continues to rise boundlessly!
In 2008, Pacific Music managed Placido Domingo's special appearance with Ms. Song Zuying at the Closing
