In May 2021, ""Sakado Junior Choir"" was formed by graduates of the Kawasaki City Sakado Elementary School Choir, with members ranging from third grades of elementary school throught to high school students.
The name of the choir was later changed to ""Junior Choir Uni"" to broaden the scope of their activities and membership.
The word ""Uni"" means one and only, and it represents the desire of the members to have ""one voice and one heart.""
The group was created in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, but four months after its establishment in 2020, it gave its first joint concert with the Takatsu Citizen's Chorus, and also performed together with the popular pianist, Mr Takashi Obara in his recital.
The membership of the choir is now open to the third grades of elementary school to university students. With new members, the choir pursues high quality ""unique"" harmony while sharing the joy of singing every day.
