Fujii has graced the stage of leading concert halls, such as The John F. Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Alte Oper Frankfurt, and Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall. In 2014, Fujii founded Music Beyond, Inc.—a nonprofit organization that harnesses the universal power of music to empower and transform people’s lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in Central Africa. She frequently visits DRC to provide music teacher training and women’s empowerment programs and help build music curriculum for local schools.
