—————————————————————————————

STAG is a 12-man Acapella choir, an offshoot of the full 60-man Fujisawa Male Voice Choir, named after its team song ‘Silver Threads Among the Gold’. Christmas concerts are now quite popular in Japan, from annual school concerts to small and large-scale city concerts throughout Japan as everyone appreciates the opportunity to sing familiar carols and songs or to just enjoy listening and singing with their friends.
Please let us put you in the mood for the holiday season. We are honored and delighted to be able to perform for you!
