Updated: Aug 4, 2019



ジョージタウンの歴史と格式のあるエバメイでの「春の茶会とピアノリサイタルの夕べ」は、表千家同門会米国東部支部ワシントンDC地区主催の初めてのファンドレイジングを兼ねたイベントでしたが、お天気にも恵まれ大入り満員で100人ほどのお客様にお越しいただきました。


The Spring Tea Ceremony and Piano Recital, which was held at the historic elegant Evermay estate in Georgetown, was the first fundraising event organized by the Omotesenke Domonkai Eastern Region Washington DC District. Blessed by beautiful weather, the event was filled to full capacity with as many as 100 people attending.





春爛漫のお庭の大きな木陰の下に設営された立礼席の会場で、3回に分け呈茶を差し上げ、お点前を初めて見るお客様達もなごやかな雰囲気でお茶とお菓子を楽しまれました。3回目の亭主は、久能祐子理事が務め、呈茶のフィナーレを飾りました。


The evening began with three successive sessions of ryurei-style tea ceremony set up under the shade of large trees in the fully blooming garden of the estate, creating a friendly atmosphere for the guests, some of whom were experiencing the tea ceremony for the first time. Dr. Sachiko Kuno, a Director of the Omotesenke Domonkai Eastern Region USA, served as the teishu at the final session.



人気ピアニスト柳谷良さんによるベートーベン、ドビッシー、ラフマニノフに日本の現代作家の曲も入ったピアノの演奏は、それぞれの曲想を見事に表現したとても心に響くものでした。


Popular pianist Dr. Ryo Yanagitani gave an inspirational and beautifully performed piano recital, which included well-known pieces by Beethoven, Debussy, and Rachmaninov as well as a piece by a contemporary Japanese composer.




上野隆司支部長のフルートと柳谷良さんのピアノのデュエットはこのイベントのクライマックスで満場の拍手が暫し鳴り止みませんでした。

The climax of the evening was when Dr. Ryuji Ueno, President of the Omotesenke Domonkai, Eastern Region, USA, joined in for a flute and piano duet, which ended in continuous rounds of applause from the completely filled auditorium.




ワシントン地区のメンバーとボランティアが何ヶ月もかけて念入りに準備し・魅力的に展示されたサイレントオークションは支部長・理事・委員・会員そしてサポーターの方々が素晴らしい品々を寄付してくださったお陰でなかなかの人気で、全て完売しました。


Members of the Washington DC District together with other volunteers worked hard for several months carefully preparing a Silent Action, which included many attractive items kindly donated by the Board of Directors, Committee Members and other members of Omotesenke Domonkai Eastern Region USA as well as outside supporters. Thankfully, the items, which were exquisitely displayed in several rooms inside the mansion, proved quite popular and all were sold.
