Kayou Chorus 20th Anniversary Charity Concert, under Japanese Association in Thailand.
Kayou Chorus was founded in 1999 in Bangkok, Thailand by the assembling of Karaoke singing lovers leading by Noriko Sakaguchi as a leader for practicing and performing concert. Noriko Sakaguchi is specialized in Jazz music, so the arrangement of music was usually in Jazz style which became the character of Kayou chorus. After she returned to Japan in 2008, Tokyo Kayou Chorus was founded in Tokyo, Japan together with some members that used to stay in Thailand. Then Mayumi Nagai, a Clarinet instructor in many leading universities in Thailand, has been continuing Kayou Chorus’s activities and lead the group as a conductor.
On the occasion of 20th anniversary, we held this special concert with various music performances such as Chronicles of Japanese pop songs, Broadway Music, Jazz performance. With over 40 Japanese performers on the stage conducted by Mayumi Nagai, joined by members of Tokyo Kayou Chorus from Japan leading by Noriko Sakaguchi, the founder. And we are also honored by Satomi Nishikawa, a highly experienced pianist in the piano contest and competition in Japan.
We would donate a part of income from charity concert to Wheelchairs And Friendship Center of Asia (Thailand) Foundation, which is the non-profit organization supported by WAFCA Japan to contribute to an inclusive and barrier-free society for children with disabilities by providing wheelchairs as a tool and also support activities in sports and education for developing those people with disabilities to live freely in the future.
