I played in a event in Omotesando Hills. The members were Ms.Yuko Kajitani the viola player whom introduced me to this job, Ms. Mio Abe the violin player whom I haven’t met since my CD releasing live, and Ms.Ayumi Hashimoto whom we play toghether in the group Phonolite.
This day is a challenge for me because today is a classic job. The songs aren’t that difficult but I am not used in playing classical music so I felt quite nervous.
People often ask me if I have any experience in Classical music. The answer is no because when I was studying as a student I went straight to a jazz course and to be honest at that time I couldn’t understand the meaning of the composers feeling and the history.
That’s why it was a big surprise when I got this job and also a challenge for me in the music that I now really respect. Luckily all the musicians were also played jazz too and understood my feelings and helped me a lot so I managed to get through it. It was a great experience.
The event was a PR for a new cosmetic item and we all wore light pink dresses which made me feel like it was spring.
Everything was different from what it was like in a Jazz club but many new things to learn.
