Japan Quake Rpt: Obata Oct ’13


Currently the Haruna church is putting its effort into support for the Tohoku Area. We are helping to make a sense of community among those in temporary housing development. For this purpose I strongly requested that my friends have periodic concerts. For our October concert we have an splendid line up of people: Kobayashi-san on the violin, Odawara-san on the viola, and Nagai-san on the electronic piano. They played older and newer compositions. They also included current familiar pieces in their program. For “Amachan” they used pots and pans for percussion and there was a loud outburst of laughter. Afterwards everyone sang in the second part “Bokurawa Minna Ikiteiru” while dancing with smiling faces. These top-class professional musicians give their time about every month for this. We are very grateful!
