ABOUT the Story and Song March 6 Event:
Laurie Rubin, Mezzo-Soprano, and Jenny Taira, Pianist, are Founders of Ohana Arts Festival and School, and Co-creators of Peace on Your Wings and are coming to San Francisco for a one-time event to benefit the upcoming Bay Area tour of Peace on Your Wings (October 2017), their inspiring original musical. The duo will weave personal stories and share their continuing journey through a multifacted musical career while also following a path to inspire the youth in the performing arts. Also performing are two youth members from Peace on Your Wings. Refreshments and wine will be served.

ABOUT Peace on Your Wings the Musical:
Peace on Your Wings is an original musical inspired by the life of Sadako Sasaki, a 12-year old girl who died from leukemia resulting from radiation caused by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. She was made famous for having folded over a thousand paper cranes to fulfill an old Japanese legend that would grant one wish to anyone who would fold one thousand cranes. To this day she is a reminder of innocent victims of war, and her story of her thousand paper cranes have inspired a movement of folding cranes for peace. The musical juxtaposes Sadako’s true story and the events leading up to her death in November 1955 with a fictional story about a group of her friends who rallied support from around Japan to have a monument built in Sadako’s memory to honor the children victims of the atomic bomb.

The fictional elements of the musical provide an opportunity to weave in issues that affect children in middle school today. In creating a piece of theater that shares an important historical element, and keeping it relatable to current young audiences, Peace On Your Wings is able to effectively impart Sadako’s message, and the important contributions of a group of young students who were able to make a difference. It is because of Sadako’s young friends that people around the world know Sadako, and why the origami crane has become an internationally recognized symbol of peace.

“I will write peace on your wings, and you will fly all over the world.”
– Sadako Sasaki, age 12
