SIJ co-founder Sumire Hirotsuru performs at UNICEF Gala Dinner


On Thursday, June 1, SIJ co-founder Sumire Hirotsuru made her debut at the UNICEF Children’s Championship Award dinner. The dinner was held to honour the award-winner Yo-Yo Ma. According to Sumire, it was an incredible honor to perform on stage with the Silk Road Ensemble as a tribute to Yo-Yo, the founder of the ensemble.

The following night, Sumire had another performance at the Harvard Art Museums with the ensemble. This is the second time Sumire has come to deliver her performance at the museum after her previous one in the opening ceremony.
