Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Marking the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings, the Weekly Feature for August 3-9 includes two works that make eloquent pleas about the urgency of preventing nuclear war: August 6th by Shinji Eshima, and Snow Falls by Ryuichi Sakamoto. Also: Sakamoto’s Passage, based on a refugee’s account of his struggle to flee violence in the Middle East.

Join us for a special webinar August 6th at 3:00 P.M. PST to hear stories about these works from MOR's artists, reflections from Consul General of Japan Yoichiro Yamada, and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. Click here to register for the webinar.
