Echo Nishitakamiya Chorus
The choir was founded in 1971 as an elementary school PTA chorus.The chorus is a member of the Fukuoka Choral Association and has participated in choral festivals sponsored by the association, and the JCA National Mother's Choral Competition.
Starting in 1993, they participated in the JCA National Mother's Choral Competition held in Kanazawa last year for the fifth time, as a representative of Kyushu. Last autumn, they held a concert with Hideki Motoyama as guest conductor. The program was well received.
The average age of the choir is 71, including four members in their 80s. They are deeply grateful and delighted that there are things teey can devote their passion to no matter how old they are, and that there are smiles on the faces of their friends who never change.
