Now streaming: 2020 ACDA Conference Performance, You’ll Never Walk Alone, and Furusato

YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE

March 14, 2021 marked one year since the first reported COVID-19 death in New York City. On New York City’s official day of remembrance, we joined Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for a powerful collaboration in memory of all those we have lost to this pandemic. Since the release of this video tribute, we have been overwhelmed by the incredible responses from our families, friends, and supporters from around the world. We are filled with gratitude for everyone who participated in creating this hope-filled rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”  

“I am so encouraged by today’s young people, they are all from different backgrounds and races. I see possibilities of change and growth for their tomorrows.”

“Really beautiful. In every way.”

FURUSATO

Ten years after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami struck Tohoku on March 11, 2011, we were asked to join the Consulate General of Japan in New York to commemorate those affected by this terrible natural disaster. Led by Associate Conductor Sophia Papoulis, our performance of “Furusato,” a well-known children’s song that means “Hometown” in Japanese, pays tribute to Tohoku’s revitalization and provides inspiration to overcome the hardships and trauma and celebrates those who are building a brighter future.
