Symphonic Bonds: Harmonizing Histories for Peace

The performance will be conducted by Mr. Seiji Mukaiyama, a Japanese composer and conductor, and will honour the exemplary friendship between Japan and Turkey. A Call for World Peace concert is dedicated to world peace, at a time when we need it the most. The symphonic suite “Friendship”, composed and conducted by Seiji Mukaiyama, will be performed by THE METROPOLITAN ORCHESTRA. The symphony has two parts and is dedicated to the true historical events that impacted many Japanese and Turkish lives. The first part is about rescuing Japanese lives from Tehran Airport by Turkish aircraft in 1985. The second part is about the Ertugrul frigate that sank off Japanese shores in 1890. In the accident more than 500 of those on board were killed, and only 69 sailors were rescued by Japanese villagers. This concert honours the acts of true friendship between the two countries that were 100 years apart.

Presented by Seiji Mukaiyama
