Lisa Ueda: Children’s Day Recital
5 May 2016, London
The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation will host a recital by award-winning violinist Ms Lisa Ueda, in aid of the children of Fukushima, who have still been suffering from the effects of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami disasters. This year is particularly poignant, as it marks the fifth anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake. The 5th of May is Kodomo no hi (Children’s Day) in Japan, and Lisa also performed at the Foundation on Children’s Day in 2011 and 2015.
Lisa will perform Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” Sonata, followed by Respighi’s Sonata. She will be joined by her distinguished duo pianist, Daniele Rinaldo.
Lisa and the Daiwa Foundation would like to ask you to support Academy Camp, a Japanese charity helping and supporting the children of Fukushima to expand their experience of study by taking them to academic camps. GlobalGiving, a crowdfunding service for non-profits around the world, will match 100% all donations to Academy Camp for children in Fukushima and other Tohoku projects while funds remain.
Please take part in this wonderful opportunity to help them.
The recital will be held from 7pm at St Pancras Church, near Euston station.The recital will be held from 7pm at St Pancras Church, near Euston station.
