We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to the victims of The Great Tohoku-Kanto Earthquake.
Many messages with thoughtful expressions of concerns/encouragements have been received from all corners of the world, to which we cannot find enough words to express our deep gratitude.
A substantial damage has been done to the Sendai City Youth Cultural Center building and it is currently closed until further notice. The safety of all SIMC staff members, however, has been confirmed.
Warm messages from many people including those living overseas are surely giving us much power to carry on to overcome this most difficult time.
We would like to work together as one toward early reconstruction and recovery.
Thank you in advance for your continued support to us in our efforts toward reconstruction of the City of Sendai, and for the Sendai International Music Competition.
