Isuzu Jr high school choral club

The choir club has been active since the school was founded and has won various national competitions. In addition to participating in competitions, we also interacts with the local community and performs at the cultural festivals of the elementary schools in the school district and at the opening ceremonies of events held by Ise City and Mie Prefecture. The members of the club make it their motto to understand the scene of the music and express it with concrete images. We are always grateful for the support we receive from so many people, and we practice hard every day, aiming to sing songs that will reach the hearts of our listeners while feeling the joy and fun of singing.
