NHK Fukuoka Children’s Choir MIRAI senior class


The NHK Fukuoka Children's choir MIRAI has been founded as a memorial of the 75th anniversary of NHK Fukuoka broadcasting studio, and it is now our 14th year. Within the limited time of once every week, we are sincerely looking into the member's own voice and to friend's voices. We have been progressing step by step, through joint concerts with the Wiener Sängerknaben (Austria) and Choir Boni Pueri (Czech Republic), participating to the Karuizawa International Choral Festival and to the Japan Choral Competition. This time, we would like to meet new music and enwiden our world through this challenge to an international competition.
