Following the huge success of their concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London in March 2014, the Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta is performing at Opera City in Tokyo on August 20th 2015 at 7pm. The concert is the culmination of this year’s project, organised by the UK-based charity Keys of Change. Internationally acclaimed concert pianist Panos Karan, the founder of Keys of Change, has been working with young musicians from middle schools in Fukushima for the past four years. This year, the Fukushima orchestra will study with Panos and other professional musicians from Europe and Japan during the first part of August, and will then travel to Tokyo to give their most ambitious concert yet.
Keys of Change believes that music can change the world. It has seen the results in their projects to bring the Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta to London last year, in providing music lessons to deprived children in India and Ecuador, and in playing to young people in remote communities around the world.
All Keys of Change’s concerts are extremely accessible and Panos’s enthusiasm is completely captivating. We do hope you will be able to come – and bring lots of friends.
