Concert nets thousands for Japan relief efforts

UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts on Friday raised $4,350 through a concert to benefit the Japan tsunami efforts.

The school organized a one-night-only classical and jazz music concert to raise money for the American Red Cross' Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.

The concert was organized by alumna Shoko Fukumara with the help of fellow alumni, students and staff.

Former and current students performed. Jazz pianist and Chancellor's Professor Kei Akagi did the featured performance.

The Claire Trevor School focuses on the visual and performing arts and offers degrees in dance, drama, music and art.
