Starting 2022 with a Celebration of JETAANC Community Talent!
On January 29, 2022, JETAANC hosted our second annual virtual Shinnenkai, Variety Show edition! The lineup included:
Alcide G. (Hokkaido 2007-2012) - Stamp-making
Amelia K. (Toyama 2016-2020) - Art
Amy D. (Toyama 2011-2014) - Harp
Amy R. (Gunma 2010-2015) - Japanese Storytelling
Grant K. (Nara 2010-2013) - Piano
Hanna T. (Saitama 2012-2013) - Violin
Philip W. (Nagasaki 2015-2019) - Piano
Attendees were also treated to a special address from Consul General Kawamura from the Consulate of Japan in San Francisco, who also surprised us with a magic show! Although admission was free, the event raised $65 in donations to go towards the JETAANC High School Scholarship.
Thank you to our amazing performers, and to our enthusiastic audience members. It was an energizing start to 2022, and we look forward to many more JETAANC events to come in the new year!
