Hiroshima includes (from left) Dean Cortez, Kimo Cornwell, June Kuramoto, Danny Yamamoto and Dan Kuramoto.

On Saturday, June 29, at 8 p.m., the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center and the Asia America Symphony Association (AASA) will welcome Hiroshima back to the Aratani Theatre stage.

The band will be in concert with the Asia America Symphony Orchestra for a night to remember. The orchestra will play music from great American composers, including Copland, Brubeck and Benoit, and Hiroshima will play many of the favorites that they have created and played over the years. The two groups will collaborate to close the show with a grand finale set.

There are three ticket levels: premium ($75), preferred ($55), and general ($35). The higher-level seats will be closer to the stage and allow for a better viewing experience. As a special encouragement to invite friends and family, JACCC is offering a group discount rate for 10 or more preferred tickets that are purchased simultaneously. The preferred tickets can be purchased for $46.75 each, a discount of 15%.

“If you have not been to the JACCC in a while, take this opportunity to come back to the JACCC and Little Tokyo and experience some of those memories with some great friends, some great music, and a great time,” said a JACCC spokesperson. “Come to Little Tokyo, enjoy dinner, and then wander over to the JACCC to enjoy Hiroshima with the Asia America Symphony Orchestra.”

The theater is located at 244 S. San Pedro St. (between Second and Third streets) in Little Tokyo. For reservations and more information, call (310) 377-8977 or visit www.asiaamericasymphony.org.
