Japanese Choral Society of Washington
Who we are
The Japanese Choral Society of Washington has been performing in Washington DC's unique cultural scene under music director Kimiko Shimada since 2001. Kimiko's dynamic performance and teaching skill elevated a group of ordinary music lovers into a harmonious group of singers. Our repertoire includes traditional and contemporary Japanese songs, classic choral pieces, and American folk music.
Our regular performances include an annual recital at the Lyceum in Alexandria VA, a holiday concert, the Japanese New Years Festival, and the Japanese Stone Lantern Lighting Ceremony for the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
We were featured performers at the Willard InterContinental Hotel during the National Cherry Blossom Festival 2018.
We performed at Carnegie Hall, Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage as participants of the New York Chorus Festival, a benefit concert organized by JAEXA on April 3, 2019 and on March 29, 2023.
