Performing together

On July 3rd, the Kwansei Gakuin Glee Club had a special guest performance at the Harvard Din and Tonics a capella concert, held at the Hyogo Performing Arts Center.

The Harvard Din and Tonics, an a capella group composed of current students at Harvard University, was founded in 1979. Since then, membership been passed down to generations of new students, selected through rigorous screenings. A very talented group, the Din and Tonics have had experience performing for TV and film, and have even taken the stage during major sporting events. In 2016 they performed in concert at the Lambuth Chapel, and had a joint performance with the Kwansei Gakuin Glee Club.


The singers from both universities

The Kwansei Gakuin Glee Club came out for the concert encore, and performed "Vive L'Amour" and the folk song "Saitaro Bushi." They then united their voices with those of the Din and Tonics to sing "Let it Be" by The Beatles and "Hana wa Saku," the song for Great East Japan Earthquake charity efforts. The students got together after the concert, and had fun mingling.
