ICC Mitaka Junior Choir


ICC is the abbreviation for Iguchi Chorus Circle.
The choir was founded at Iguchi Elementary School in Mitaka City, Tokyo, about 20 years ago. We have been performing at various contests and recitals, aiming to reach the hearts of the listeners.
Our repertoire consisted of many selections from ""Nohara Uta"" written by Naoko Kudo and composed by Yuta Miyake, and each of us selected favorite ""Nohara"" character and deepened understanding via play and making-funny-faces contests. In order to express the heart-warming world.
Junior and senior high school students who graduated from the elementary school have come to support the students, singing, and teaching together. For the graduates, the place where they grew up singing together as elementary school students, the ICC, has become an important treasure.
Around 2019, graduates and elementary school students started singing together, and the ICC Mitaka Junior Choir was formed.
The Choir received the Gold Prize in the 3rd Tokyo International Choir Competition of the Children's Choir J and S.
