The March monthly meeting was held at the Embassy of the Republic of Angola, by courtesy of Mme. Maria de Fatima Xavier, the spouse of Angola Ambassador.
We enjoyed the Ikebana demonstration by Ms. Toko Adachi, Second Grand Flower Master of Kagei Adachi School and then we listened the music by Ange Musique group, Ms. Ichiko Tanaka (Clarinetist), Ms. Mayumi Hosaka (Flutist), Ms. Yoko Ito (Pianist) and Ms. Naomi Takahashi.
The theme of Ikebana demonstration was done on the theme, ‘Hanagoromo’. In the first ikebana demonstration, cherry blossoms and camellias were beautifully arranged in the bamboo container that was widely placed on the stage, and the performance of Ange Musique was harmonized well.
A light and bright spring was beautifully produced with “Yose Ike” by the distinguished guests.
Ange Musique’s performance wrapped the venue elegantly, and they accepted the encore and everyone listened their music intently.
After the meeting, the attendees enjoyed the tea time with the hospitality of Mme. Xavier.
