On August 30, Yoko Owada, an internationally acclaimed flutist, performed at Nishinosato Junior High School in Kitahiroshima City, Hokkaido. She played three well-known classical scores; she also responded to requests from students with popular anime theme songs and other tunes.

Ms. Owada’s latest performance was held as part of the Min-On Concert Association’s School Concert series, an ongoing outreach initiative launched since 1973 with the aim of promoting music appreciation in Japan as well as around the world. All concerts in the series are free of charge.
