March 24,2007: The 33rd Yufuin Music Festival, executive committee No.1
|The time has come when we start the preparation of Yufuin Music Festival (YMF) as usual. The meeting place was held at our regular tearoom Kotokoto-Ya. We headed to the valley in the torrential rain. The meeting started at seven in the evening.|
|Beautiful rose welcomed us at the tearoom entrance.
Mr. Masakuni Kato, the chairperson of the executive committee,introduced the draft of the artists and program of the festival. I presented fruit cake I bought in Fukuoka Group Of Friends meeting.
|Mr. Sato is the temporary secretary-general of this time.|
|The questionnaire was distributed to the executive committee members in advance and summed up today. We checked them each other.|
|We then exchanged opinion how to solve the problems written in the questionnaire.|
|We checked frankly on many problems such as the starting time of the evening concert,guest gathering on Friday, pickup bus, and careful cleaning of the music hall.|
On the wall of the tearoom were original paintings of the CD's cover born in YMF.
The next meeting will be held on April 19.
