Please join Music Beyond this month in celebrating the birthday of our fearless leader, founder and CEO Kaori Fujii. After a successful career as a world-renowned flutist, Kaori began to think about the ways she could make a meaningful difference in people's lives outside of the concert hall and recording studio, leading her to found Music Beyond in the summer of 2014. Since then, Kaori has worked tirelessly to champion the talented musicians she works with for more than three months each year through our music teacher training program, women's empowerment program, and school partnerships in DR Congo.
Kaori has one simple wish for her birthday: Support Music Beyond with a donation that will go directly towards our efforts to bring transformative music education and enrichment programs to the people of DR Congo and beyond.
"For my birthday this year, I'm asking for your support to the organization that is my heart and soul: Music Beyond. Working with the most determined musicians and the next generation of youth in DR Congo for the past five years has taught me so much about the transformative power of music. These musicians have completely changed my idea of what a career in music looks like, my views on the meaning of music, and my entire life. It is my privilege and honor to have the opportunity to support them, which I am only able to do through your kindness and generosity.
I would love nothing more than to continue to empower and enrich the lives of these musicians—one person at a time—so that they can empower their own communities and serve as change-makers who can rewrite the often negative narrative of the challenging yet magnificent country of DR Congo. I hope you'll consider contributing to Music Beyond this month (and throughout the year!) as a way to celebrate with me."
