Below are video recordings of our most recent concert, held at Moto Shin Meigu Shrine on February 27th, 2011. This concert was perhaps our most successful to date. We owe a great deal of this success to Aoki Sensei, priest at Moto Shin Meigu Shrine for creating such a warm and intimate setting for the 10th International Hougaku Concert. We would also like to thank the professional players for giving us their valuable time and cooperation in bringing the performance to a level otherwise unattainable.
We feel especially lucky and thankful to have been able to hold this event, in light of the ongoing disaster in northeast Japan. Our concert was less than two weeks before the earthquake hit. More than ever, we all need to embrace the healing power of music; we hope the recordings below will bring comfort and inspiration. Please give or do whatever you can to assist the tens of thousands who were not so lucky.
