Cherry blossom celebration

Continue reading below

In 1912, Japan gave 3,000 cherry blossom trees to be planted in Washington, D.C. For five weeks this year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is marking the centennial anniversary with cultural programs and performances around the country. To coincide with the national celebration, the Boston Higashi School, a school for autistic children in Randolph, will hold a music festival on April 30, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend the free event. Special guest performers will include members of Kioi Sinfonietta Tokyo, one of Japan’s foremost chamber orchestras, who will be in the Boston area as part of a four-city tour. - Wendy Chow
