Yayoi-sougensha “R” is a mixed Chorus established in March 1996 in Sapporo City, aiming chorus ensemble with flexibility and elasticity in a way only possible with a small group. Our large repertoire includes Renaissance classics to contemporary music, and even new songs by Japanese composers. We also have a positive attitude with picking up “unknown masterpiece”. We devote ourselves to playing “cool” music not only classics, but contemporary music with physical performance. We won the first prize of Sapporo Art Festival in 1996 and 2002.
