The Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta is a youth orchestra based in Fukushima developed out of the aftermath of the disasters of 2011. Founded by U.K. charity organisation Keys of Change and pianist Panos Karan, the Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta demonstrates how important music can be as an agent of healing in times of great emotional upheaval and future uncertainty. The mere preparation for a concert can bring varied communities together for the common purpose of playing or listening to music together, an act that is so simple and powerful, and yet so under-appreciated.
