‘For me it is a great honour to perform on the new stage of the famed Mariinsky Theatre as part of the year of cultural exchanges between Russia and Japan. I am also glad that the concert will take place in the country with which I feel a special bond since my grandmother was born here.
Pianist and conductor Niigaki Takashi will take part in the concert. I will perform my songs with the symphony orchestra. The concert’s programme includes very diverse music, from world-famous songs to Japanese nursery songs. I hope that those who come to the concert will enjoy all the songs and music performed.
See you at the concert!’
