The turn of the year is just around the corner. The Japanese people enjoy Beethoven's 9th Symphony toward the end of the year and the Yokohama Marching Band will play its 4th movement at the very end of the year 2015, counting down to the new year 2016, and celebrate a happy new year by music.

Please show up at the stage at 6:00 AM PST (23:00 JST), 30 minutes before the show begins so you can get a musical instrument and practice playing it! :-) Of course, your participation as an audience as usual is also welcome. Anyway, let's celebrate the new year together by enjoying the music. We are all looking forward to seeing you there!

winds and Hiroshi Appear at SL9B!

The time to celebrate Second Life's 9th birthday is just around the corner.  This year, YMB will not set up our exhibit because our real life engagements make our one week performance difficult.  But winds Seiling and I will appear in person at SL9B Green Stage for live performance.  Please do not miss winds' marvelous performance on the clarinet and, perhaps, on the saxophone.  I will back her up on the piano and play the synthesizer by improvisation.  We are looking forward to seeing you there. :)
