Roppongi Men’s Chorus Club
In 1999, about 20 people, laymen as singers but well known professionals in their own fields, got together to perform at an AIDS charity benefit concert.
Soon thereafter, the group was formally constituted. Members hail from wide range of backgrounds: politicians, businessmen, academics and cultural figures, ranging in age from 20 to 86. They perform and raise money at various charity events for causes such as the Children’s Earth Fund, the Afghanistan Ambulance Fund and Indian Ocean Tsunami aide.
