2015/04/22 The great conductor Kazuki Yamada and Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus in Shimoda

150422chorus01I'm a member of Chorus in Shimoda, and we will have a concert with a professional chorus group, "Tokyo Philhermonic Chorus" and the conductor "Kazuki Yamada" on July 12th 2015.

Mr. Yamada got the 1st prize of International Competition for Young Conductors in Besançon, France in 2009.

He has come to Shimoda a lot of times since 1998, and we had a lot of concerts with him until now.

He came to Shimoda yesterday again and we had a special practice for the next concert with him.

It was a great time for us and we were defenitely developed by him.
