March 15th, 2009: With only two days of practice, WCJ participants performed for the first time at the local ABC Festival in Suita city! Even with limited rehearsals, the performance was a hit among the enthusiastic crowd. Because songs like “Hi wa mata noboru” and “Gake no ue no Ponyo” are so popular in Japan, the audience eagerly sang and dance along!
“Encore! Encore! Encore!!”
Our participation at the festival was an excellent way to interact with the community. We were able to bring an international flavor to a local event and experienced the amazing feeling of contributing to Japanese society.
