Momiji / JSS Present:
Wed. Jun 28, 2023, 1:30 – 2:30 pm
The concert has been postponed to the fourth week of June from the original date of 22 March.
An hour-long online concert, bringing back by popular demand, with Toronto-based singer-songwriter Yukiko Tsutsui, will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS).
What is this session about?
Listening to music is known to have many positive effects, such as lifting mood and relaxing the mind and body. In particular, there is something special about listening to live music. However, many people may have had fewer opportunities to experience music at concerts since the pandemic. Therefore, in this joint seminar, we will invite back Yukiko Tsutsui, a singer-songwriter currently based in Toronto, to hold an online concert.
She will perform various songs, from oldies to Showa-era songs and songs requested through the registration form. Why don’t you take this opportunity to request your favorite song? (*Due to the limited concert time, please note only a select number of requests can be performed)
