What an amazing musician! And a caring activist taking music to folks who
would otherwise not be able to enjoy. Thanks for the links.
Music In Place - https://www.musicinplace.org/ - was started almost 2 years ;
ago to support musicians, composers, production folks out of work due to the
pandemic. It’s still going strong, and could be a channel for her to get
funding as well as visibility.
Do text me (510-414-3275) when she arrives, tho’ I just came down with a cold
and it might be best if I stay away from people. Ah, the perils of relaxing
mask-free even in a fully vaccinated setting…
Her talks on composition and the influence of western culture (expansionism,
church etc) are fascinating, and she breaks everything down with examples.
Best of luck to her, and all those she touches,
Ian & April

Subject: [capricornave] Short Demo PianoVan Concert tonight, 277 Capricorn
Sorry for the late notice: our dear friend and house guest, Makiko Hirata, an
accomplished concert pianist, is doing mini concerts around the Bay this week
in a ‘Piano Van’ for local homeless, women’s shelters, and other impact
advocates. She is passionate to take music to the people who might not get to
experience a live concert. Please find info on the work she is doing and
Today, she will be down the street on College Avenue at SockPop, from
10:30am-1:00pm, 2926 College Ave and this afternoon at the Fremont Public
Library, 2400 Stevenson Blvd, from 4-5:30pm. If you get a chance please check
Since we have the fortune of hosting Makiko and the PianoVan, she will offer
a quick neighborhood demo of the van and speak to the work she is doing.
Please BYOB to 277 Capricorn and come take a peak tonight and learn about the
amazing work being done in our community to bring the arts to everyone. Text
me if you are interested in joining 415-606-6640 and I can text when she
arrives and is ready to do a 10 min demo/talk (likely between 7:30-8:15
depending on her arrival back from Fremont). It goes without saying, any
donations to support her work through intros, sharing the schedule, or even
dollars would be welcomed.
