      Concert in November 2012 【Hatsune no mori Junior Chorus】
        Ciao tutti! How are you? It's getting colder and colder day by day, and the air is very dry. Please take care of your health! Don't forget "Ugai" (gargling) and "Tearai" (washing hands) after taking your coat off at home! In our garden, the leaves are turning red which tells us the arrival of fall.

        JVF has 【Hatsune no mori Junior Chorus (Hatsune forest's Junior Chorus)】 which consists of 22 young amateur at music from 6 years to 13 years old. Hatsune (初音) is the name of an area in Yanaka where JVF is located,
        and it means "the first sound". Isn't it charming?

          ITO Jun
          , a leading Japanese bass singer, will have An Evening of Italian Classic Songs and Arias from Italian Opera as a part of Dokuen Concert Series. ITO has a large repertoire ranges from more than 40 roles from opera to solo parts of oratorio, requiem, and symphony. Among them, he has performed Colline(La Bohème) and Sarastro (Die Zauberflöte) numerous times. ITO's Fiesco (Simon Boccanegra) and Filippo (Don Carlo), which he will perform in this concert, are also very fascinating with his sonorous and profound low voice. For the first part of the concert, ITO selected Italian classic songs. These pieces sound sinple, but they are inavoidable for those who study vocal music. In other words, they are the basis of the vocal technique. Undoubtedly he will perform these pieces with superior quality with YAMAGUCHI Kayo's skillful piano, an expert of accompaniment for vocal music. Don't miss it!

          Concert in August 2012

            Hello, everyone! 
            It's very hot every day, but I wish you are not suffering from heat fatigue. We call it "Natsu-Bate" in Japanese. From many years ago, Japanese people eats broiled eel in summer to prevent "Natsu-bate", but this year, the price of eel got extremely high!!! Therefore, let's listen to fine music in air-conditioned museum as prevention of "Natsu-bate" instead of eating eel! It will be a fantastic and artistic concert.
