Hokkaido Asahikawa Higashi High School Music Club


The Asahi Higashi Music Club, also known as Kyokuto Music Club, was founded in 1925 and has a long history. We participated in the National Chorus Competition in 2022. In addition to participating in competitions, although it is difficult under the current circumstances, we also present the results of our daily rehearsals by visiting local facilities (we now deliver concerts and record them on DVD), performing at events, performing in the city, and giving regular concerts. We play the Kyokuto sound without forgetting to thank everyone who supports our daily activities.
