Saito Kinen Orchestra Brass Ensemble performed brightly at Iwaki Performing Center.
One of the good thrill of being on a tour is performing in different city and venue each day.
Tonight the Iwaki Performing Center gave us a full range of color lighting to match with each music and added spice to the tour.
The members were quite happy when they could leave their names on the wall of the backstage. Thank you all for coming to enjoy the ensemble harmony!
And big congratulations to 10 years anniversary, Iwaki Performing Arts Center!

Tomorrow the tour finally comes to the final day. We see you in TOKYO!
