6th Performance on Goldberg Variations in Japan and Visit Many Japanese Cities 8/3/13

August 3, 2013

I came back to LA from Japan trip, and I think it was the longest stay in Japan for many years. I spent about 3 weeks there. The concert was at church in Odate City, and fortunately many people attended it. (I have another performance on Goldberg in this fall in Northern California.) After the concert I met with my husband to travel through Japan, Nagoya for Grand Sumo Tournament (I am a huge fan of Sumo), Kyoto for Gion Matsuri Festival and temples/shrines, Hiroshima for Miya-jima and Kintai-Kyo Bridge, Kanazawa for Kenroku-en Park, Noto Peninsula, Shirakawa-go, and Hida-Takayama, and Tokyo for Kamakura, family and friends gatherings. I up-loaded photos from this trip in Photo section of this web page. It was my first trip to travel through Japan, and it reminded me for our amazing history, culture, beautiful sites, and food-culture.

Right after I came back to LA I heard so many excellent students at SYMF for 2 days. I was impressed by their dedication on music and piano. Some of them have big future in music, and I look forward to hearing their names. I did not touch piano for 2 weeks during traveling so I have been on rehab. for my fingers! I will perform a very short piece for my church’s Offertory Music tomorrow! It is August, and the fall is fast approaching!
