The Biwako Hall Vocal Ensemble is a select group of young vocalists that have been chosen through nationwide auditions on the basis of their abilities as opera singers.
In addition to in-house opera productions and regular concerts at the Biwako Hall, they engage in various activities including performing in regular concerts upon the request of orchestras across the nation.
The Biwako Hall Vocal Ensemble has been recognized for their strengths as an ensemble, born from being a permanent company, and their broad repertoire ranging from opera solos to sacred and choral music, in addition to the superior singing skills of the individual performers.
In the future, we hope to bring their inspired singing to overseas audiences as well as to audiences in Japan.
Please look out for the activities of the Biwako Hall Vocal Ensemble.
