The Kioi Sinfonietta Tokyo (KST) chamber orchestra was invited to perform the closing concert of the 2012 Cherry Blossom Music Festival, with performances at Verizon Hall in Philadelphia, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, Sanders Theatre in Boston, and Alice Tully Hall in New York. The tour celebrated the centennial of Japan’s 1912 gift of cherry blossoms trees to the U.S. and Japan’s gratitude to the U.S. for supporting the victims of the 2011 Great Japan East Earthquake. The planting of 60 Friendship Blossoms dogwood trees on November 26, 2015, symbolizes the strong friendship between the U.S. and Sendai.
