SOPA goes to Japan!

Members of the SOPA Choir have just returned from a highly exciting and educational choir and cultural exchange in Ise, Japan.

Following last summer’s week-long visit of the Japanese choir to Malta, this July the SOPA Choir travelled to Japan for a number of cultural and musical workshops based on Japanese traditions.

The choir also had the opportunity of participating in 6 concerts , the highlight of which were the concerts at the Shrine and at The concert hall at Ise Topia. Included in the repertoire was an original piece written by Tom Armitage especially for this occasion . This song included two soprano solos which were performed by Maltese soprano Francesca Aquilina and Japanese soprano Megumi Hiro.
