Saiki performs live concert to help fund Japan relief efforts

Austin MacDonald

     It is concert time. Come out and watch a concert on April 17 from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. in the Jazz Lab. This concert is called The Help Japan. This concert is being performed because Michiko Saiki, a music student at NSU and Japanese national, felt helpless after the earthquake and tsunami had hit. So she decided to come up with a fundraiser to help Japan out. 
     Saiki is a piano player so she and a few other students are going to put on a concert in the Jazz Lab.
     “The event gives students a way to support the Japanese Red Cross Society in their efforts to help those in need,” said Angelika Copp, office manager in International Programs.
     Many of the Japanese students at NSU felt they needed to help their country in any way possible and since they are so far away they did not know what they could do. Michiko came up with the concert and fundraiser idea and her interest has been extraordinary. Come out and watch a great concert performed live.
