WIFA-SIFA Live - Student Music Showcase

Saturday, March 13, 2021

Join the Worthington & Sayama International Friendship Associations for a live virtual program, bringing Worthington and Sayama citizens together to share music, cultures and conversation. WIFA and SIFA will come together live from our two countries for a special showcase of student music. Choral and instrumental performances will be featured from students in Sayama and Worthington, then students will join WIFA and SIFA members for conversation and discussion. In addition to a celebration of music, we will remember the 10th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami of March 11, 2011. We will reflect on the lives lost and how music brought support, comfort and healing for our friends in Sayama and the people of Japan. Registration is required. A link will be sent to registrants in advance of the program.

WIFA-SIFA Virtual Connections Background

Although our in-person delegation visits are on hold during the global COVID-19 pandemic, the friendships between Worthington and Sayama have remained strong. We have overcome challenges of the past year and, thanks to technology and online communication platforms, we have continued to meet virtually and develop programing for people from Worthington and Sayama to join together live, in real time. The first live program in December 2020 featured holiday customs and traditions from both countries. We plan to continue live programs throughout 2021. WIFA and SIFA are committed to continuing our sister city connections and conversations. We recognize all that we have in common that brings us together.

We hope you will join us for this special program to strengthen the bonds of
our long-time sister-city relationship.
