The Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta is one of the most positive things to emerge from the devastation of the 11 March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in north-eastern Japan. The young musicians of this extraordinary orchestra are thrilled to return to London for a performance full of emotional intensity, with a programme including Tchaikovsky’s captivating Fifth Symphony.

The Fukushima Youth Sinfonietta has become a beacon of hope for a region devastated by loss, personal pain and suffering. Set up by UK charity Keys of Change in partnership with schools in Fukushima, initially to bring hope to the young people in the area, the orchestra has made rapid musical strides and has already performed in the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Tokyo Opera City, and in Boston Symphony Hall, where the determination of the young people to create something truly excellent in the face of all kinds of adversity has had the power to inspire other young people and adults.
