The Music for Peace Concert is dedicated to the memory of those we lost and  
to the pain of those who are suffering in our community after the traumatic  
attack on the Patriots' Day Marathon.  You are invited to a reception with  
artists and Massachusetts Peace Action members after the concert.

Pianist *Mana Tokuno* has received wide-spread acclaim for her sensitive and  
insightful interpretations and her brilliant virtuosity. First Prize winner  
of the prestigious Competition Internationalé, she also received the Leo  
Sirota Award for Piano Solo Performance at the Corpus Christi International  
Competition as well as the Special Award for Schubert Interpretation at the  
International Competition Valsesia Musica in Varallo, Italy. Other prizes  
include the Dosei-Kai Prize for Distinction in Performance, and the Silver  
Medal in the Chubu Chopin Competition in Nagoya, Japan.

The young cellist *Emily Jane Taubl* has attracted attention for her  
expressive playing and uncommon poise. She has been featured in the New York  
Times as a musician of great promise, and was called "an outstanding cellist  
with a bright future" by the Hartford Courant. Having performed throughout  
the country, she has appeared as a concerto soloist with the Hartford  
Symphony, Granite State Symphony, Boston Virtuosi, New England String  
Ensemble, Nashua Chamber Orchestra, and Julliard Pre-College Symphony.

San Francisco native mezzo-soprano *Jaime Korkos* is currently pursuing an  
Artist Diploma in Opera Studies at the New England Conservatory, under the  
tutelage of Luretta Bybee. Ms. Korkos was most recently seen as Doralice in  
New England Conservatory’s American premiere of the new Critical Edition of
