Friends of El Sistema, and
Super Kids Violin Group, Kamaishi, Japan
In 2011 a tsunami wiped out much of Kamaishi, Japan. The trauma and loss felt by the community continues seven years later, but much of the city has been rebuilt. Reconstruction continues but much has yet to be done. However, hope is high and energies are vibrant. As part of this return to normal life, schools need to replace lost teaching materials for pupils. Six Cat Studios has the privilege to give masterclasses to students in the Friends of El Sistema programme and the Super Kids Violin Group. We have also donated 11 violins between both groups. Our support and encouragement continues through 2018.
Instruments and supplies donations
As part of our community outreach we ask for donations of instruments in need of a new home. We maintain and re-donate these instruments to our Kamaishi, Japan and Siem Reap, Cambodia outreach programmes. We are always thankful for things such as music stands, extra strings for violins, rosin and so on. If you have anything you would like to donate , please let us know and we can arrange to pick it up with a big thank you!
