Japan Benefit Concert in Yomitan, Okinawa

Today, I got mail (not electronic mail) from my coursin Shoko in Okinawa. Shoko included a flyer for her brother's music concert for the benefit of Japan, which was held on June 26th. I know it is kind of late to announce the flyer on my blog.  Please do not think I'm a bit silly to do so.

My coursin Akira is an opera singer who is trained in the operatic arts in Milan and Vienna. He has had numerous concerts in both Europe and Okinawa, and has acted and sung in historical opera dramas in Okinawa since 1989, including Momoto Fumiagari, Amawari and Sangoku Shi. He also directed, written music score and acted as one of the cast of a play of the operatic version of Yushiya Chiru Monogatari - a story of the well-known poet Chiru Yushiya, who was born in Yomitan. Akira has been performing solo concerts at the Ashibina Theater in Okinawa city and many on other stages in Yomitan village, Okinawa. He composes songs, and teaches piano and singing at his studio in Takashiho Yomitan.
