Japan Self Defense Force Ensemble | October 6, 2015 | Tuesday, 6:00PM
Please join us for an evening of Japanese and English music played by premier band members from each branch of the Japan Self Defense Force (SDF). Eight talented performers from the Ground, Maritime, and Air services will perform familiar and heartwarming selections such as Sakura (さくら), You Raise me Up (ユーレイズミーアップ), and Inori: A Prayer (祈り).
Often performing for state guests and official visitors at national events, the JSDF ensemble is offering this special show to confirm its dedication to global peace and stability during the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required for security purposes.
