Very Young Composers of Fukushima and New York (TOMODACHI Suntory Fukushima Mirai Music Program)

Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 05:00 PM
David Rubenstein Atrium in New York , NY

This concert is part of the TOMODACHI Suntory Fukushima Mirai Music Program, which brings eight Japanese high school students from Fukushima prefecture to New York City. This program was launched in February 2016 by Suntory Holdings Limited (Suntory) and the TOMODACHI Initiative, and is held in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic's Very Young Composers program.

The program provides students in the wind ensemble club at Fukushima Futaba Mirai Gakuen High School opportunities to rehabilitate their hearts through music. The Japanese students have been creating their own arrangements of the Japanese song Furusato, which means "hometown" in Japanese. During the concert, New York Philharmonic musicians and guest artists will perform the music created by Very Young Composers from Fukushima and New York City. 

These activities are a continuation of the collaboration between TOMODACHI and the Philharmonic in the 2014–15 season

Tickets are free and the event is open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited. 

For more information, please visit the New York Philharmonic's event page.

The ocean's resources, as well as its possibilities, were long considered to be infinite. But now, faced with various problems such as global warming, pollution, overfishing and inappropriate development, the marine environment is in an unprecedented crisis. In order to keep the ocean beautiful for generations to come, women from the United States and Japan will discuss possible solutions at this symposium. Akie Abe, the First Lady of Japan and wife of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Irene Hirano Inouye, President of the U.S.-Japan Council and wife of the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye, are representing the two countries across the Pacific.

This event is hosted by Akie Abe, Irene Hirano Inouye and Sailors for the Sea Japan, and supported by USJC, the Hawaii Tourism Authority, and The David and Lucile Packard Foundation.

Besides Ms. Abe and Ms. Hirano Inouye, other main speakers include:

  • Tamayo Marukawa (Japanese Minister of the Environment)
  • Julie Packard (Executive Director, Monterey Bay Aquarium)
  • Margaret Spring (Vice President, Monterey Bay Aquarium)
  • Meg Caldwell (Board, Monterey Bay Aquarium)
  • Ruth Gates (Director, Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, University of Hawaii)
  • Takeji Mazuka (President, Sanctuary NPO)
  • Minako Iue (President, Sailors for the Sea Japan)

For more information, please see the flier here.
