STUDENTS RAISE FUNDS THROUGH MUSIC FOR CHARITY TO SUPPORT UKRAINE

Cool Story - STUDENTS RAISE FUNDS THROUGH MUSIC FOR CHARITY TO SUPPORT UKRAINE

On July 18, the Music Liberal Arts school at Tokyo College of Music held a charity concert at TCM Hall on the Daikanyama Campus to raise funds and awareness for war-torn Ukraine. The show featured Ukrainian artist Kateryna performing folk songs on the bandura, a traditional Ukrainian string instrument, and was organized by third-year student Nanaha Kinoshita. Kateryna is one of only two bandura players in Japan, and she has done charity work for her homeland both locally and internationally. She also expressed a desire for the concert to be broadcast in Ukraine after the conflict is resolved. Other performers included faculty and students from Tokyo College of Music, as well as approximately 70 volunteer youth singers from outside the school.

"Through music, we can protest and pray for peace," Kinoshita said when asked what inspired the event. While watching news of the war every day, feeling the pain of not being able to do anything, feeling helpless, this project aims to appeal for peace through the power of music." This prompted her and the other 38 organizers to act, resulting in a successful concert. The organizers, who received assistance from Ukraine to promote the concert, also received a boost from celebrity UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Tokyo College of Music alumnus Tetsuko Kuroyanagi, who raised funds and promoted the event on her Instagram account.

 

The concert's proceeds were donated to UNICEF to aid war victims, provide medical care, and assist children caught up in the conflict. In June and July, students from the school collected donations on the streets around the Nakameguro shopping district, raising over $426,000 for UNICEF.
