School concert tour in Oita

It was first day of our school concert tour in Oita yesterday. :)

I was worrying about raining, but it was fine day!! :D


This is morning view. ;)




The school which we visited yesrterday is located in front of sea.

It was very nice place!! :D ;)




It was very warm day, so it was little bit too hot to perform in its gymnasium. :)



There are 2 more concerts on this tour.

I'll make nice music for young generations! ;)

Fantastic time with good friend!

It is my big pleasure to meet good friends anytime, anywhere.

It was great to meet my good Spanish Euphonium friend Pep in Japan yesterday!!! :D


He was invited to Japan for giving masterclass and concert this time and he came to Japan for his first time! ;)

I hope he enjoy his stay and have good concert!! :D




After this fantastic meeting time, I headed to Oita for my orchestra's school concert  tour.



It was raining in the morning in Osaka, but it got better when I was reaching to Oita. ;)




After arriving Oita safe(with no rain), I had good practice in the hotel room.

I'm preparing for my solo concert which is on December 19th. :) ;)

Enjoying happy days

I took part in NSO(Non Strings Orchestra) project this year.

NSO is a special orchestra which clarinets replace violin, viola and cello part(other part is same as usual orchestra).

Cello part is played by bass clarinet. ;)


Concert of NSO this year was in Tsu city(Mie).

I enjoyed those few days with my wife Ai. ;)


I drove to Tsu from Osaka by car.

It was fantastic day!! :D



We had very good time on our way to there. :)




Rehearsal went well. :D

Concert hall was very nice!! ;)



Low Brass section this year! :D




There was big party with nice members of NSO after rehearsal.

I had really good time and enjoyed talking! :D


We had midnight noodle party after party in the hotel room. ;) :P

I enjoyed every moment!! :D




Concert went well and everybody(of course including me) was very happy!! :D

It was also nice to meet good friends!





I backed to my usual life after very happy time in Tsu with NSO members.

I got very happy and positive energy by NSO activity, so I continue my works with positive energy!! :D



I'm preparing for my solo concert which is on December 19th in Osaka with my friend Akikazu. ;)

I'm very looking forward to performing with him! :)



And now, I'm working on Beethoven in my orchestra. :)

Keep myself in good shape

There are many concerts and rehearsals these few weeks(it continues until the end of December).

It's not easy to keep myself in good shape, but of course I'm trying to do that everyday.


Very good news came to me few days ago.

My good friend from Spain, Pep will come to Japan(Osaka) soon!!! :D


I'm not sure if I can meet him then, but I hope I can meet him in Osaka! ;)

It's pity that I can't listen his concert... :(




I've been occupied with my orchestra, but I enjoyed my Euphonium class as well. :)

It's getting hard to make time for them, but this class gives me good energy every time! ;)




Orchestra works continue.

I have concert with Japanese famous singer tonight.




I know it's fantastic life with many things if we are in good shape.

So I take care of myself well and enjoy my music life!! :)

My orchestra's school concert tour started again in Kagoshima!!


I moved to Kagoshima on Sunday, and gave concert in Amami-Ohshima yestreday.

It was very nice day to move to Kagoshima by Shinkansen on Saturday.
