２０１２年 Lessons & Carols Program
Greetings to you. What a wonderful blog to find while our family is at Rikkyo. My spouse is a Fulbrighter in Law and Politics here, and we heard the organ (perhaps a student at the keys?) just the other day. The children were fascinated. They play piano and would like to know where they might practice around campus, if at all? I have heard the Rikkyo choir practicing and love the tradition of music in this place. Hope to be in touch when the tour is over.
Thanks for reading the blog, and welcome (belatedly?) to Rikkyo. How long will you be here?
Rikkyo doesn’t have a music department, so there are no piano practice facilities on campus, unfortunately. A lot of people pick up an electronic piano while here, then sell it when leaving. That way one can practice with headphones and not disturb the neighbors. I am back in Tokyo, and am normally in the chapel kaikan next to the chapel (2nd floor choirmaster’s office). Feel free to drop in and introduce yourself.
I’m planning to visit Tokyo this Christmas and attending Christmas midnight Mass at Rikkyo University All Saints’ Chapel. I looked everywhere for the Mass times but so far have not been in luck. Do you happen to know the schedule for Christmas services? Please let me know. God bless,
Sorry to answer this so late, Jacky. And I believe I have already been in touch with you via Instagram. But just in case, the Christmas even midnight mass begins at 11:45 pm.
