The ICEP participants who visited Vietnam in December 2018 came together again to share their music making, jointly and individually, in Japan in June 2019. This is the second part of the ICEP experience each year.
Midori, Tatjana Roos (violin), Charlotte Malin (viola) and Alan Toda-Ambaras (violoncello) visited schools, hospitals, welfare institutions, nursing homes and other institutions in Tokyo, Obama, Takamatsu, Tokoyama City and Wadayama. There they played sections from string quartets by Mozart, Puccini and Debussy and, individually, visited classrooms, hospital rooms and other spaces to communicate musically with young children and elderly people in various states of health and awareness.
They blogged about their experiences.
The quartet also gave public concerts in Osaka’s Phoenix Hall and Tokyo’s Oji Hall.
