Soka Gakuen Music Festival commemorates its 50th anniversary

Soka Gakuen Music Festival commemorated its 50th anniversary on Saturday, December 23 and Sunday, December 24. According to the theme of "Reverberate! Our Soka Sound! 2017!" the elementary, junior high, and senior high schools' music clubs performed with a sense of appreciation for the year and those who always support them. Both in the morning session and afternoon session, the hall was filled to capacity, and a lot of visitors watched the students' performances. During the afternoon session on the 24th, many guests, which included mayors and heads of the board of education from neighboring cities, visited the school. The students' heartfelt rendition and chorus impressed the guests and made them feel warm. One guest stated, "I was so excited at the power of Soka integrated education!" Other positive comments were also heard, such as "I was deeply impressed by the clear vocals when I heard the students singing the school song to commemorate the 50th anniversary" and "Today's performance was much more than full marks! Every performance was wonderful, soul-shaking, and moving!"
