Hello Everyone,

If you're seriously interested in singing *and* you want to practice your Japanese pronunciation, here's a great opportunity! A Japanese music & voice teacher in the Wesley Chapel area has formed a Japanese Chorus. We meet twice a month on Tuesday mornings from 10 a.m. until noon at a local church. You don't have to read or speak Japanese but if you read hiragana & katakana it's a little easier (not absolutely necessary--Romaji is available).

If you're interested please send me an email at [email protected] and I'll give you more details.

Here are the songs we're practicing so far:

さくら さくら - Sakura Sakura (traditional)

里の秋 - Sato no Aki (traditional)

赤とんぼ - Akatombo (traditional)

君をのせて - Kimi (w)o Nosete from Laputa: Castle in the Sky

夏の思い出 - Natsu no Omoide (traditional and used on NHK Drama)

いつも何度でも - Itsumo Nando Demo from Spirited Away

となりのトトロ - Tonari no Totoro from Our Neighbor Totoro

ソーラン節 - Soran Bushi (traditional)

翼をください - Tsubasa (w)o Kudasai from the anime K-ON!

ふるさと - Furusato sung by Morning Musume

花 - Hana (traditional) First line is "Hana no urara no Sumidagawa"

Our first performance is coming up soon! ♫♪

We'll sing a few songs at the JETAA Natsumatsuri in Seffner/Mango on the Morning of June 9.

Had to Google that one. ^_^ It's a pretty song! Regarding the chorus, we *did* perform at Natsumatsuri...but then we disbanded. I think it was too much work for Naoko-san. We sang the theme song from Totoro, "Sampo" also from Totoro, Natsu no Omoide, Tsubasa wo Kudasai, Sakura Sakura, and Akatombo. It's been almost a year now. I've forgotten many of the lyrics!
