The LEXUS 10th Anniversary JAZZ FESTIVAL


「レクサス星ヶ丘10周年記念 JAZZ FESTIVAL」。
The LEXUS 10th Anniversary JAZZ FESTIVAL rounded up this summer’s performances.

Opened my set with Leoncavallo’s  [I Pagliacci] aria Vesti La Guibba,  followed my NY State of Mind by Billy Joel, ending with My Way.

Harmony Concert in Lake Kawaguchi, Stellar Theater featuring John Ken Nuzzo


Here we are at the Mt.Fuji Lake Kawaguchi Music Festival 2015! Overwhelmed by this welcome poster! I have to make it an amazing opening concert for the festival, which will last until 8/22.

The various chorus sang the first act. I will start my set with the aria [Cielo e mar], Schubert [Die Forelle and Du bist die Ruh]. As my special guest, Ran Matsumoto will join me with Strauss [Morgen], and [Amore Perduto], after he solo piece.  She is always so elegant and musical.

Third Act, we all joined the chorus for two Japanese songs, including the song [Mt. Fuji], almost like an anthem for the people in this area. To wrap up the evening, I chose the Neopolitan song [Funiculi, Funicula], which sings Lets go to the top of the mountain! A truly amazing sing along experience for all!  We all even got our own festival T shirt.

Ran and I in the theater after the show, where they opened up the roof and the wall to get the BEST Mt. Fuji. The concert was named the Harmony Concert, and at this point, we were all in harmony with the nature and this amazing mountain of Japan!
