HOPE Charity Concert for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan

17 november 2013, Oxford

HOPE Charity Concert Series presents a charity concert of classical music played by Rachel Erdos (violin), Henry Fagg (violin), Yoshi Inada (bassoon) and Kanae Furomoto (piano). This is the third in a series of concerts in aid of the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that hit the Tohoku region of Japan in March 2011. More than two years after the disaster, the recovery process is still proceeding slowly and the victims are worried that the rest of the world will forget them. HOPE Charity Concert continues to stand by them in an effort to help them return to their productive lives.


The programme comes from a wide range of the classical repertoire – from Bach’s Double Violin Concerto to Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango – and contains music from Britain and Japan.
