The Tarumi Violin Program, founded in 1986, is composed of talented youngsters of varied ethnic and racial backgrounds from the Greater New York Metropolitan area. Under the dynamic leadership of Yukako Tarumi, these motivated young musicians are spreading a message of love and world peace through the universal language of music. They have performed for Kings, Queens, Popes, Presidents, Senators, Governors, Mayors and more. The Tarumi Violinists have been rightfully labeled by the media as “Musical Ambasadors of Peace.”
