We ARE all affected by the quake, tsunami, and resulting damage. Local musicians and artists are reaching out to help the people of Japan. Enormous relief efforts will be required to help Japan recover and rebuild. We encourage you to be part of these efforts by joining us on June 12th. If you can’t make it to the concert, you can still help by making a donation, buying a ticket, advertising in our program or donating to the silent auction.
