Resonance : A Tsunami Violin concert

Keep Friday 16 March open for a concert featuring a tsunami violin made from the debris left by the tsunami on the seashore of Rikuzen Takata, one of the areas most devasted by the tsunami.  The violin may evoke images, emotions and memories of great loss, but it is a symbol of resilience and hope.

Performed by Scottish born, Australian-Japanese violinist, Kana Ohashi, this concert in Melba Hall is one of the most special venues for Kana as she made her concert debut here at the age of 11 with Elyane Laussade.
