Memorial Concert for the sufferers of the Great East Japan Earthquake
The Green Chorus is a Japanese women’s choir formed more than 30 years ago in Golders Green, London and is a regular participant of Japanese Festivals, at the Southbank Centre and various other venues, introducing Japanese music to the UK.

For this special Lunchtime recital, the Green Chorus performed a mixed programme of Japanese and Western songs including Sakura or “Cherry Blossom”, which may be one of the best known Japanese melodies outside the country.

The Green Chorus also introduced “Hana-wa-saku” which literally means ‘Flowers are blooming’, created as rehabilitation support song for the sufferers of the Great East Japan Earthquake that struck the country on 11 March 2011.

The Green Chorus wish and hope to continue to contribute something through music that will inspire and deepen understanding between English and Japanese people and would like to dedicate the event to the people in the Tohoku region of Japan.

With the support of Nippon Club.
