Contribution to local community has worked as more important role of university in recent years. Chiba Institute of Science is a small-scaled private college located in rural area, central Japan. The institute focuses strongly on cooperation to local community, providing a large variety of educational and industrial activities. However, less outreach program on earth and planetary science has been done for senior adults.
Professional percussionist performed a concert with stone-made musical instruments, in January 2014. This concert aimed to be intimate to geomorphology and geology for senior adults. Questionnaire research showed good authentication by totally 55 participants, while a need for improved advertisement. We report practical results and participant's evaluation of two concerts held in January 2014 and March 2015.
