Japan Relief Benefit Concert - New England String Quartet at Marsh Chapel (BU)

April 13, 2011 - 3 p.m. at Marsh Chapel (BU)
Dear Friends,

On April 13, 2011, our string quartet will be performing in Marsh Chapel at Boston University to collect the donations for victims of the Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami in Japan. The program will feature works by Japanese composers Joe Hisaishi and Yumi Kimura (used in award-winning Hayao Miyazaki's films), and music by J.Brahms, F. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, W.A.Mozart. All donations collected during the concert will be sent to the American Red Cross directed toward supporting Japan.

We are inviting every one of you to attend this concert, and bring your family, friends, and co-workers. The suggested donation is just $5, and our quartet will send to The American Red Cross 100% of all donations. Together we can make a difference, and we believe that with the support of our friends, community, and fellow musicians, we will be able to encourage more events like this to be performed across the New England area during the Spring/Summer 2011. 

As we are looking forward to seeing all of you on April 13 at Marsh Chapel, we are already getting lots of positive feedback, and currently we are looking for venues across Massachusetts to host more benefit concerts featuring our quartet and other young performers who have expressed interest in collaborating on these projects. If you know someone who would be interested in hosting a Japan Reliefe Benefit Concert, please contact us by e-mail or by calling (857) 399 - 7837.

Please help us spread the word by sharing the event page on Facebook, hanging the poster at your workplace, or simply visiting The American Red Cross to donate to Japan online. Thank you for your support!

  1. The Classical music is thriving in Japan. Local and International bands play classical music since last year. Most of them are charitable in cause too.

  2. I agree with the previous comment. Japan is one of the best countries to perform. Japanese are very easy to please. They appreciate things even the simplest one. I love Japan, and I am planning to revisit this country soon. thailand holidays
