Koichi Miyoshi

Born in Sapporo (Japan), he started the violin at an early age with the Sapporo Symphony founder Masao Arayama. While attending the Hokkaido University, he participated in the Pacific Music Festival, working with conductors such as Leonard Bernstein and Michael Tilson Thomas. Upon graduation, he moved to Tokyo, being active in orchestra, chamber music, and solo recitals. He currently resides in Aichi, where he teaches and leads amateur orchestras, student orchestras, and concert bands, as well as performing solo and chamber music recitals.

Hailing from Nagoya (Japan), Kito graduated from Ferris University. From a young age, she immersed herself in improvisation and developed her musical skills through the art of improvisation.  Her music has been praised by music magazines as “amiable and penetrating” and “a pianist who is able to balance her intellectual approach and her own flair of inspiration to create a unique personality.”
