Kammerchor “Hiroshima Kantorei”


The Kammerchor "Hiroshima Kantorei" is a new chamber choir founded in January 2014, by choristers and the conductor Nozomi Terasawa that agreed with the vision of "to bring passionate music for prayer!". Having a capella sacred music of the romantic period as their main repertoire, they are rehearsing in Hiroshima city with an aim to make a performance that can convey the wonder of chorus and move the feelings of audience. Their activities include regular concerts, open recording sessions, and publishing their music on Youtube. Riding the big wave of the consecutive victory of Hiroshima Toyo Carp, the baseball team that their leader loves, they intend to ring passionate music for prayer!
