2021 was a year of constant scrambling to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. We would first like to express our deepest condolences to all of those affected. With the release of multiple vaccines, we saw a dip in the effects of the virus. However, as new variants continue to appear, the future remains unpredictable. The music industry, which we’re deeply involved with, has also been greatly affected and we hope that things will return to normal as soon as possible.
The time has flown by since we changed our company name to AlphaTheta Corporation in 2020. With the same intentions we’ve always had, everyone at AlphaTheta will keep working hard every day towards our One Through Music mission.
The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has drastically changed our ways of life but we’ll continue to adapt, create innovative products and services, strive for the development of music culture, and tackle challenges in the fields we work in, which we believe are greatly needed by society.
We appreciate your continued support and encouragement.
