Kaz Kojima is proud to present the USA - Japan Goodwill Concert at Carnegie Hall - Stern Auditorium on Monday, April 16, 2012 at 8PM.
The concert will benefit Japan earthquake victims and feature performances by the Goshiki Sakura Chorus from Japan and The Westchester Chordsmen. Coro Fenice from Japan will also perform.
Goshiki Sakura Chorus are from the Arakawa Boro of Tokyo, an area renowned for their cherry blossom trees.The chorus will sing songs composed for this Carnegie Hall event to honor the 100 year anniversary of Japan's gift to the U.S. of 3,000 young cherry trees as a symbol of friendship. The chorus is also scheduled to perform at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
The Westchester Chordsmen is a renowned male chorus based in Westchester, New York, dedicated to the singing of the finest Barbershop music out there. Our commitment to musical excellence as well as having a good time make us the perfect outlet for creating this very unique sound.We not only have a great time singing with over 80 men of all ages, but we encourage and foster the well-established Barbershop tradition of quartet singing.
The Westchester Chordsmen was founded and chartered in June of 1953 and is a proud member of the Barbershop Harmony Society. In it's over 50 years of existence, the Chorus has regularly put on performances, twice a year, and has traveled around the world and the country performing. We've sung in Europe and China as well as in our country's own White House. Our most recent performance locally focused on the music of Richard Rogers, though in the same concert we sang a Beach Boys medley, God Bless America and Prayer of the Children. http://chordsmen.org/
