What a night! On behalf of all of us at FEW, a great, big thank you for joining us for Concert For a Cause!
On a balmy, summer night, FEW members, friends and performers got together at British pub 2nd Half in Takadanobaba for a night of music to raise funds for Mirai No Mori, an NPO providing life changing outdoor programs empowering disadvantaged youth in Japan.
Over ¥70,000 was raised that night – fantastic work everyone!
Sarajean Rossitto of Mirai No Mori opened the evening with an introduction to their work. All proceeds from the concert will go towards sponsoring places on these programs for abused, neglected, and orphaned youths in Japan. The NPO is deeply committed to supporting their growth into happy and successful young adults and is working hard towards their sponsorship goal. Learn more here.
The evening’s music then kicked off with a stunning performance by Nagauta Shamisen players, Kumiko Kondo and Einojou Kineyan. We’re delighted that they’ll be sharing news about shamisen classes with the FEW community soon – stay tuned!
Next, mother and daughter duo, Nanae and thirteen year old Nadya Ismail, took to the stage for a wonderfully creative performance featuring jazz, an original song written by Nadya, and fun with cocktail glasses!
Monique ‘Mo Melody’ Dehaney rounded off the night and got us all moving and grooving with a self-styled set, called love and happiness, ranging from rock n roll to reggae and which included an incredible collaboration with dancer, Kelsey Holley.
Thank you to all performers for their generosity with our best wishes for continued success!
From all of us at FEW, a big thank you and we look forward to seeing you after the summer break!
