December 20, 2003:YMF (Yufuin Music Festival)Executive Committee's Christmas party
|A little bit early Christmas party was held in Yufuin at Kotokoto-Ya tearoom.
I was told that it was snowing from afternoon, and we started earlier than schedule.
|The fireplace was already warm. This is one of our favorite seat.|
|Many dishes will be brought-in today. Mr. Kato cooks his famous beef stew.|
|Gotoh prepares canape.|
|I soon helped making them. Misako brought a big dish.|
|The party is ready to go.|
|Mr. Matsumoto started the party with his unique play of Shakuhachi flute.|
|YMF Executive Committee members enjoy the atmosphere.|
|Today's special guest is Junko Ohmori who performed wonderful play in YMF this summer.
We are really happy by listening to her live violin closely.
|After the play, pleasant eating and chatting are here and there.
Kato's special beef stew was really tender and good.
|Many kinds of canape are good as well.|
|Pop open a bottle of champagne.|
|Toast! We have had a good time this year. We hope to welcome another wonderful year soon.|
Pleasant chatting flower everywhere.
|I brought-in such a cake. The design was Mt. Yufu on the background and Merry Christmas YMF.|
|Junko Ohmori cut the cake. I was happy to know that all people said it was good.|
|Ohmori plays much wonderful music during the party.
|The wonderful party was over after a while. It was very cold outside and the road was frozen. We will stay here in Yufuin tonight.|
