Music Diary Notes: NYC Concert to Support Japan

Music Diary Notes: NYC Concert to Support Japan

This year seems to be filled with more than its share of tragedy, making it is too easy to forget how difficult rebuilding is for those impacted by devastating events a couple of months later. Fortunately the Consulate Generals of Germany and Japan have teamed up to sponsor a concert to benefit the people of Japan. Featured in the concert is Ayako Shirasaki, whose most recent recording I reviewed here.

Here is some info:

The Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Consulate General of Japan invite you to a concert for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

Free admission. RSVP required to germanconsulatenyc [at]

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at the door or online. The German Consulate General suggests making a contribution to Malteser International in Japan – more information below.

Here are the time and location details:

Location and time:

Thursday, June 9, 2011, 6 p.m.

German Consulate General
871 United Nations Plaza (49th Street and 1st Avenue), New York

If you are in the NYC area and can attend, it is a great opportunity to hear some excellent music and donate whatever you can manage to a great cause.

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
