Thank you, all !! 

Again, it was a tremendous success!
Thank you very much for coming to our concert.  I am sure that you all have enjoyed it. As a participant, each of you made a significant contribution to this concert. I would extend our sincere appreciation to you on behalf of all of my associates who have dedicated themselves to the concert.
I also appreciate the artists who voluntarily participated to this concert. You guys were terrific.
Everyone of you received big applause. You really deserve it. The venue also made a difference.
It was a unique but enjoyable concert where a victim's mother played a piano in a duo to perform a song written by her husband.
I believe that we could deliver some message to people both in US and Japan through a number of media who have reported our concert.
I really look forward to seeing you all next year.

Pictures of the concert will be posted soon.
Also, DVD is now being copied. For those who ordered the DVE, please be patient. I will send you as soon as it is ready.
DVD is still available. Please place an order by email if you like to have one. It is free (suggested donation: $20).



Tsuneyosi Saito Dedicating a New Music to The Concert  

One of the most popular and active music producers and composers in Japan, Tsuneyosi Saito, is writing a new music for the concert. It is titled as "Nuages Roses", meaning "clouds of roses"to be dedicated to the victims and their families of 9.11.
He will play the piece collaborating with a flutist, Eriko Fukui, at the concert. His participation to the concert is decided just recently.
Mr. Saito has been very active in Japan in producing musicals, plays and ballet music as well as composing a number of songs for animations and CMs. He is also known as a member of the trio, Kryzler & Kompany, that was formed while he was studying at Tokyo University of the Arts with Taro Hakase and Yoshinobu Takeshita (both are also popular and active in Japan).
