THE HANAMIZUKI CHOIR – Music loving women from Japan residing in Westchester founded Hanamizuki in 1983. They named the group Hanamizuki, a dogwood tree in Japanese, as a symbol of New York’s beauty. The group rehearses in Greenville Community Church in Scarsdale under the guidance of Aya Shimada as the music director and conductor, and the pianist, Keiko Hayashida. In order to enhance cultural relationship between U.S. and Japan, Hanamizuki has been performing in concerts at local schools, churches, and retirement homes in Westchester and Fairfield counties.

Free and open to the public.
