This is Saitama Prefecture's youth mixed chorus Sopra il fiume (nickname: Sopra).
In Saitama Prefecture, where choruses are popular regardless of age or gender, the group was founded in
June 2018 with the aim of becoming a group where youth generation chorus lovers can enthusiastically
work regardless of their origin. The Italian word for the group represents Kawagoe City, Saitama
Prefecture, where it is based.We aim to enjoy the music by actively pursuing the possibilities of chorus only by the members without calling a permanent teacher.
