Together in Tohoku

The Tokyo Foundation organized a memorable week of workshops and concerts in August 2012 that brought hope and courage to areas devastated by the March 2011 tsunami. Using donated instruments, middle and high school students in the Tohoku district rehearsed and performed alongside musicians from three of the world’s leading music conservatories, who volunteered their time and skills to support Tohoku's reconstruction through the power of music.
