English Teachers Organize Music Festival

English teachers Richard Lee (33) and Kuniko Yoshino (30) have organized a music festival to be held this weekend in the Oita Prefecture city of Nakatsu. "Concert on the Rock 2" will feature 17 groups of both Japanese and foreign musicians, and the music - from rock to reggae to jazz - will continue late into the night on both days. Entry for both days is only ¥1,500 and camping is allowed. Part of the proceeds will go towards relief efforts following the Sumatra Earthquake. Lee, an American, and Yoshino work at the Keio Academy eikaiwa school in the city. They started the festival last year and this year they have engaged the support of musician friends from all over western Japan. For more information, contact Keio Academy on 0979-24-7477.
