Queen Elisabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London, 02.04.2014
In April 2014, Keys of Change invited 37 Japanese teen-age musicians from the FYS to London for a concert at Queen Elizabeth Hall, to present a program of international standing including a new musical work composed for the FYS by composer Ronald Corp, and coordinated the FYS workshops and exchanges with young British musicians. For the Queen Elizabeth Hall performance the FYS collaborated with professional British musicians of the Orpheus Sinfonia and their performance received a standing ovation. While in the UK, the Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta also performed for Treehouse, a local London organisation looking after children at need, giving a chance to the young Fukushima musicians to use music to help others. They also performed at BBC Newsnight. This musical visit was the accumulation of projects by Greek/British pianist Panos Karan, founder of Keys of Change.
