The Little singers of IZUMI
The choir was founded in 1994 as an extracurricular class at Tokyo Izumi Kindergarten. It debuted as the youngest choir with an average age of 6 years old. It has 227 members, ranging in age from 4 to 15, who have received "Music Step music education”. They value the beautiful sound of high tone without shouting and aim for rich expression. They have won the Gold Prize at the Tokyo Vocal Ensemble Contest, and the Aozora Prize at the All Japan Junior Chorus Festival five times in a row. In 2002, they performed at the Silk Road Concert, inviting the late Prince Takamado and ambassadors of various countries. In 2004, they received the "Music Education Promotion Award" sponsored by the Mainichi Newspapers. They have made four concert tours to Poland, which have been very successful. They have also given concerts at Tokyo Opera City and Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Main Hall, and will give their fifth concert in Poland next May.
