OF NOTE

Concerts to aid Chernobyl victims

The Chernobyl Children's Fund, Japan, will hold a series of charity concerts starting April 17 to raise money to help those still suffering from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine.

Natasha Gudziy, who was 6 when she was exposed to radiation in the accident, will sing, and her younger sister, Kacha Gudziy, who was only 1 month old when the accident occurred, will play bandura, a Ukrainian musical instrument with 61 strings. Three Japanese musicians will also take part -- on piano, keyboard and koto. At some concerts, the sisters' father, Mikhail Gudziy, who worked at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, will give a lecture.

In Tokyo, the concert will be held from 3:30 p.m. at Sesion Suginami ([03] 3317-6611. A five-minute walk from Higashi Koenji Station on the Marunouchi subway line).

Advance tickets are 2,500 yen and can be ordered by calling (03) 5376-7897 or faxing (03) 5376-7890. At the door tickets are 3,000 yen; for disabled people, high-school students and younger children the price is 2,000 yen.
