November & December




圧巻、会場一つに ヌッツォさんら観客魅了(2015/11/23)

It was really busy November and December, but a great way to wrap up my year. Thank you so much everyone for coming to my concerts!

The Opera Gala Concert on November 22nd was for the 70th Anniversary for Daily Tohoku Newspaper. Maestro and the singers from or near the local Hachinohe area, joined together with the chorus and orchestra to sing highlights from “The Magic Flute”,” Carmen” and “Turandot”. I was honored to be a part of this incredible music celebration!


November 24th was a “REQUIEM” composed by Mr. Saegusa. I joined soprano Maki Mori and the Roppongi Men’s Choir to sing this amazing piece at the Tokyo Cathedral, the center for Catholic’s in Japan and also the place where I sang my very first recital in Japan.

December 19th, my X’mas Recital at Yamaha Hall in Ginza. I programed so the first half felt like you were in a church with “Ave Maria’s”, “Panis Angelicus”, and Bach’s” Benedictus” for the B Minor Mass. Second half picked up the temp with musical medleys and xmas songs. I was joined by a new accompanist, Miss Ayako Takada.


The Special X’mas Live at the Blue Note Nagoya, on December 24th.
I sang various songs like Michael Jackson’s “A Place With No Name”, a movie theme song “Miracle” and a big challenge, “Vesti la giubba from the opera I Pagliacci”, in a totally Jazzy style. I think this was people’s favorite.
