Refreshing Friendship with Japon sans and Corianos 

What an exceptional and memorable trip we had in Coria del Rio, Spain and Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy !!
Reunion with Hasekura Japon sans in Coria was another excitement. Visiting the elementary school there, meeting boys and girls with big curiosity and singing in front of them were another experiences we encountered during this trip.
Finally we could say hello to Tsunenaga in Civitavecchia and met Maria in Kimoto at the Martyrs' Church there. And what a beautiful ocean we saw at the port of Civitavecchia! The same ocean that the delegation of Hasekura embassy saw 400 years ago! I believe we could share the excitement of Hasekura right before the meeting with Pope.
Please go to Photo Gallery in http://jch-tomo.org where you can see hundreds of pictures taken by members of Choir Tomo showing their enjoyments and excitements.

Christmas Concert at UNIS Well Performed 

Japan Choral Harmony TOMO was invited to perform at the Christmas Concert sponsored by alumni members of Sophia University and Aoyama Gakuin University on December 15, 2016. The concert was held at the auditorium of UNIS (United Nations International School) to raise the fund for inviting students of Fukushima to New York next year. JCH sang about 10 songs, including Ave Maria (Gounod, Caccini), Christmas Eve (Tatsuro Yamashita), Graduation Photos (Yumin), White Lovers (Keisuke Kuwata), and a number of Christmas songs for about 50 minutes. Yoko Yamashita, Akemi Hirose, Miki Sasamoto, Sho Tadehara, Yoshi Oshimizu and Tomoko Abe performed well as a soloist respectively. Yoshi Nagayama and Hiroshi Yasuda also conducted their beautiful performance of trumpet.
With this concert, JCH has completed its all activities in 2016.
Thank you, everyone! It was another wonderful year for JCH!!
