Sean Kennard Concert in Japan
(June 9 - 18, 2012)
Sean and his friends from The Juilliard School are currently visiting Japan in the region where the last year's devastation from Tsunami and earthquakes had brought many hardship to the residents. Here are their concert schedule.
Upon reflecting over 2012, the most natural and poignant symbol of our message is when our world was filled with so many beautiful artworks by children and teens. We are very fortunate to have had this opportunity to communicate such a strong voice for our common goal, a peaceful world, and a world free of nuclear weapons. This is a step toward our collective effort. We will continue with an even greater effort this year. Please keep your support for us and look forward to our united work with young people in the form of film, music presentation and art exhibitions in 2013.
Thank you again for your continued warm and strong support for the Harmony For Peace Foundation and hope you will join us in our many exciting and inspiring events this year. More news to follow soon!
With gratitude, Much Peace and Harmony
President & Executive Director, Harmony For Peace Foundation
