Fighting continues in Ukraine. Repeated attacks by missiles, drones, and other means have left many people in mortal danger. As the cold winter approaches, it is becoming increasingly important to care for the physical and mental health of the people. Medical teams around the world are providing medical assistance to the wounded, taking great care to ensure their safety in areas close to the battle zone. Born in Tokyo, Gen Tomuro spent his life in San Francisco, Boston and Paris. Gen met the French pianist and conductor, Philippe Entremont and became his sole apprentice. In 2018 Gen received his Master of Arts with Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music in London. In 2019, through the introduction of Médecins du Monde, Gen performed in the disaster areas of Fukushima on two occasions and had the opportunity to meet and speak with the residents. This year, Gen was invited to give concerts in France, Belgium and in the Netherlands, and participates in the International Long-Thibaud Competition.
With the month of December, which is the month of donation, we would like to hold a charity concert to ask for more of your interest and support for the people of Ukraine.
We are pleased to invite Gen Tomuro, a pianist who participates in the International Long-Thibaud Competition in 2022. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful piano sound that he plays with hopes for an early return of peace and for the days when everyone is connected to medical care and can live a healthy life in mind and body. Your participation will help support the people of Ukraine
