Music for Japan

We’ve all seen the footage of the triple disaster in Japan, shocking images, frightening stuff.

Students and alumni of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam have organised a concert for tomorrow, to collect donations for the victims of the earthquake. Money will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross.

The concert is organised by one of the students and the performance will be by students from Japan and other countries; Saeko Oguma (viola), Makiko Goto (koto), Willem Brons (piano), Harrie Starreveld (fluit).

Entrance is free – donations are welcome.
