Indonesia: Indonesian music rebuilds schools and bridges cultures
By Sasha Regher - October 4, 2006

Classical composer Trisutji highlighted in charity concert series aiming to help those affected by natural disasters.

JAKARTA, Indonesia – Musicians across continents and four generations, from 11-year-old Stephanie Onggowino to American violinist Sharon Eng, gathered in Jakarta to perform for the “Resonansi: Trisutji Greatest Works” concert. Proceeds went towards rebuilding music schools and giving scholarships to those affected by the 2004 tsunami that devastated the region. The concert also hoped to inspire cultural understanding through musical appreciation. As Minister Jero Wacik said, “Music is a cultural bridge between the world’s nations.” This concert is part of a series continuing until next July and including dates in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bangkok.
