MMCJ2021 Second day of the seminar

The students spent the morning rehearsing on their own, reviewing what the professors said the day before.

We had a choice of Hamburger steak stew over rice or Tofu Hamburger steak bento.

Professor Manabu Suzuki coached the students in the evening.


Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we were not able to invite students and professors from abroad like we did in the past. However, we started the seminar yesterday with four quartet groups from Japan. It was the beginning of an intense week of rehearsal and coachings by Professors Naoto Otomo, Manabu Suzuki and members of Quartet Excelsior.

Professor Otomo’s greeting and introduction of the students and professors.

Students listening to Professor Otomo’s comments and advices.
