Tsurukawa Dai-ni Junior Choir
Tsurukawa Dai-ni J.H.S. chorus club was established by Mr. Manabe when he was transferred to the school in 2005. Miraculously in 2007, Mrs. Manabe was also transferred to Tsurukawa Dai-ni Elementary School in the same school district. Both schools have achieved magnificent results in numerous competitions every year. The choir has been performing at the joint concert, known as its annual regular concert, for about ten years. The concert is performed by a total of 200 participants ranging from elementary school students to adult graduates. There are many fans attracted to the singing of choir members who have learned “Manabe-ism”. Therefore, it’s hard to get the free concert tickets. The choir also contributes to the development of group singing in local communities by giving mini-concerts in hospitals and nursing homes. Their singing comforts singers as well as audiences with a feeling of happiness, and nurtures the spirit of understanding, caring and cooperating with others. We are grateful for such circumstances in which we can share this wonderful spiritual growth. In order to enjoy group singing into the future, we organized a special team including elementary, junior high, and high school students.
