The collaborative music performance showed me a great story. It is the story of “Care and education for orphans” weaved by people of goodwill started one hundred years ago with the book “Daddy-long-legs”.
What moved me was not merely the beauty of the music.
I was moved by hard working children in the center of the story, the passion of Mr. Tamai who worked over fifty years for them, and moreover, the fact that we, audience were also members of the story.
It was far from fictions on the screen or the TV.
I was moved by the real story that was connected with my life.
