Auckland Coming of Age Ceremony 2017

Auckland Coming of Age Ceremony 2017 was held on February 28.DSCN0733

DSCN0736Young and older participants were welcomed with a big cookie at Mt Albert War Memorial Hall.

Speeches representing young ‘new adults’ and ‘older adults’ alternated with performances such as Yosakoi dance, music and drum performances. DSCN0749

The highlight for me was the performance by Isomura Brothers. The young up-and-coming professional musicians played a couple of Japanese tunes, one traditional and DSCN0757the other contemporary, symbolizing youthful hope.

Being the second year in Auckland this was a fairly small event, but I hope it will grow with each year.
