Hanamizuki Mixed Choir
Founded in 2006, by the graduates of Amagasaki Municipal Tachibana Junior High School Choir in Hyogo prefecture. The choir’s name “Hanamizuki” means “flowering dogwood” in Japanese - which is the city tree of Amagasaki. Presently, the group, consisting of members from around the country, is led by Terumi SAKAI, and has always been keen on pursuing a unique musical expression. Despite the frequent member changes, the group aims to be “a choir where all of the members can come back and sing together whenever they want to”, embodying one of the symbols of dogwood flowers - “durability”.
The technical coach is Takako OKAMOTO, conductor of Mukogawa Woman’s University Junior & Senior High School Chorus Club, and ex-advisor of Amagasaki Municipal Tachibana Junior High School Choir. The choir achieved golden awards in the Tokyo International Choir Competition, National Choral Competition in Kansai area, and Hyogo Vocal Ensemble Contest.
