This time we interviewed each unit leader on his/her impression of this year and expectation to the coming new year.

Jun (Mirai) Nakao / Director Music Unit IAPG

What we as Music Unit "Earth Children" found in 2015 is that "Chorus has power to connect people with each other hand in hand."

In 2015 our four music units, Primavera, ARION, Green Impulse and Love Harmony tried to get together and started common performances as one large choir. These units have been performing separately, so that this is our challenge. We performed a musical play "Earth Anthem" together for the first time in the "Prayer of Love and Peace Yokohama Performance" in July 2015. The chorus that four groups got together and sang was so powerful, so I believe that an additional attractiveness was applied.

In August 2015, we held the "Prayer of Love and Peace Hiroshima Chorus Festival", inviting six independent choirs in Hiroshima. On the stage of the festival, each choir presented its unique message of Love and Peace. In the chorus festival finale, including Love Harmony of IAPG, around 150 members from 7 choirs were standing on the stage and sang "LOVE AND PEACE" and "LOVE SONG FROM HIROSHIMA" as the Earth Family Choir. We felt it would be great if this circle of the Earth Family would be spreading around the world.

In 2016, the music unit "Earth Children" would like to shake hands with people more and more with this "Power of Chorus". Please look forward to "Earth Children" in 2016 as well!

Masa Nagai / Head of ORION Theatrical Company IAPG

This year we performed plays in various places in Tokyo, Yokohama, Hiroshima, and New York. Thanks to your great support to these events, we could have a very fulfilling year this year. We would like to say thank you so much for your warm support.

In 2015, ORION Theatrical Company has been performing three main dramas, "The Firefighters", "Prayer of Mother Mary - A Miracle in NAGASAKI-", and "SAIKAI - REUNITED - Vow of HIROSHIMA". Various people appear in each of the drama in different places in New York, Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

We believe that wherever we are living in the world and leading different lives, it should not be denied that we are living on the same Earth. The common theme of all the dramas we perform is "Prayer of Love and Peace". Through our performances, we hope you feel the truth that we are brothers and sisters living on the same planet Earth, although each of us has a different nationality, a different culture and a different religion. We firmly feel that such messages of us would be the first step toward making a peaceful Earth.

On January 11, 2016, we will hold our Kanagawa Performance in Japan. We will perform "The Firefighters", a quite impressive story of New York firefighters. Please stay tuned with us in 2016.

Message from the IAPG Founder, Noriko Inamori

There is no need for something particular. The most important thing is to recognize that we are one family as humans on earth, and to be able to become one loving each other. For that purpose, could you give us a hand?
