The Neumann University Concert Chorale will perform a benefit concert for the victims of the earthquake in Kumamoto, Japan, on Friday, September 23 at 8 p.m.
On April 14, 2016, Kumamoto and other southwestern Japan prefectures suffered two massive earthquakes. They struck the region in quick succession, initially leaving 49 people dead and more than 3,000 injured. Severe damage occurred in the area with numerous structures collapsing and catching fire. More than 44,000 people had to evacuate their homes due to the disaster. Since then, there have been more than 2,000 aftershocks.
Neumann University’s Concert Chorale presents this benefit concert to express deepest sympathy and condolences to those affected by the series of earthquakes in Kumamoto, Japan, and to raise funds to aid those in need.
Admission is $8. Seniors and students with ID are $5. Free for children under 12. Special donations will be accepted. The performance will take place in the Fred P. Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center at Neumann University. A charity bazaar will be held immediately following the concert.
