Minamisoma Junior Chorus Ensemble.
MJC ensemble is a chorus group organized by the seventeen Junior and senior high school students, who love to sing in chorus and were in Namie and Minamisoma in Fukushima prefecture. They had practiced to take part in the national chorus contest in August of this year, but the sudden earthquake and the nuclear disaster ruined their hope. The seventeen students took shelter apart in and around Fukushima prefecture. But now, they canft give up their idea of participation to the contest, and they come to Haramachi once a month and they practice chorus at Meijo-kan. Although they donft have enough time and their circumstances are limited, they are making an effort at singing. g We hope our songs will encourage all people who supported us,h they said.
