I`m starting a new thread here as a result of recent discussions with Laurie and v.commie members about support for the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra and helping to bring music to the region hit the earthquake and tsunami on the 11th.
I have spoken to the Sendai Philharmonic Office and they told me the following:
Their goal and determination is to to bring music to as many parts of the region as possible as best they can. The orchestra will meet and do it`s first concert together this Saturday (tomorrow). At this time they will discuss how they are going to move forward and the kind of things they need.
I told that that our basic idea was to form an Internet based group that supported the orchestra and there families in any way they felt was necessary. Given that they emerged relatively unscathed I also asked them to extend the question of needs to things like outreach programs or musical activities in the region that the orchestra is connected to.
That`s it for now.
