Saitama City Junior Chorus

The choir was founded in Saitama City in 2011 and will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year.
The members, who range from kindergarten to university students, work hard to polish their individual sensibilities in a place where they can be themselves, express the joy and pleasure of singing together, and create harmonies that value harmony.
The experience of participating in the 1st Tokyo International Choir Competition has broadened their range of expression and given them more positive motivation for music.
Last year, they performed in the International Music Meeting Japan 2019 Tokyo, which gave them an opportunity to share the excitement as well as international exchange through music, and to nurture a richer spirit.
From now on, they will continue to carefully and boldly transmit the joy of being connected through choral music to the world from Saitama City, where the sound of singing voices can be heard.
