Previously, Takuya Kambara, a top young Japanese pianist, organized a program for a one hour online classical piano concert. Through music, Kambara expressed his support for the campaign to the world. The program was built around the color “blue” to signify healthcare professionals, and consisted of an hour of delicate and moving piano music.

For Volume 3, titled Blue Rose, three artists will come together to cheer up the world through an InstaLive. The free concert will be held through the Instagram accounts of @taishilou (7:00pm–7:20pm), @ushi_handpan (7:30pm–8:00pm) and @kambara913 (8:00pm–8:30pm).
