Faire un Don


Charity Concert Report from AMDA Canada

On April 25th, a charity concert to support the recovery of Tohoku was held at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Vancouver. More than 400 audiences were present. The people shared an evening filled with the harmonious music played by Rutsuko Yamagishi (piano) and Chieko Konishi (flute).

Ms Yamagishi's "La Campanella" won tempest of applause from the entire audience. With her last piece, "Apres une Lecture de Dante" received a standing ovation.

Almost 13,000 dollars were raised from the evening. The donation will be sent through Rose Charities to AMDA's Otsuchi Health Support Center in Iwate Prefecture.
We are ever so grateful for your generous support.

Below are some of the comments from the audience.

I was impressed, amazed, and above all had, myself, the most wonderful time in the incredible cascade Rutsuko's "out-of-this world" music. I have attended many classical piano concerts in my life, but I don't think I have ever seen an interpreter (virtuoso) put so much of themselves into it. Vancouver return, Tohoku, the Cathedral, I believe we witnessed something very rare and very special last night; one of those unique and unpredictable moments when seemingly unrelated elements all converge to create something truly amazing. (W.G.)

Thank you so much for inviting me to the concert last night. My friend and I loved it! It was such a nice concert! It was great to see the updates on how people are doing back in the damaged areas in Japan. I believe that everything will become better and better with strong hearts and positive attitudes. (L.X.)
