Kanagawa Kenmin Hall

We will continue to introduce you to the "Kanagawa Kenmin Hall"! Last time, I introduced you to the audience seats in the large hall. Let's take a special look at the stage this time and show you the true face of the spacious "sacred place" that you can't usually see. The TOP image above is a shot of the audience seats from the stage! If you get applause from a full customer, that would be happy.

On a wide stage. The part surrounded by the color cone is the "seri" part that I introduced last time. This big hall has a frontage of 20 meters! It is 10 meters high, 18 meters deep, and has an area of 1,337 square meters. This area has been around forty years since it opened. It seems that there were few theaters where full-scale opera could be performed at that time, so it must have been a valuable presence.

There are flower paths on both sides of the stage. It seems that Kabuki was set up 40 years ago because Kabuki was still popular as a performance in public halls, but it is said that theaters that have such Hanamichi and can also perform opera are still rare today.

SaFrom here, I went behind the scenes to the small hall.

This is a place called "Kamite Tamari", where the performers who are waiting for their turn are waiting. I'm sure there is a tense atmosphere in this place during the performance.

As I walked through the backyard ... I arrived at a small hall before I knew it. This is one of the dressing rooms used by the performers who appear in the small hall. Imagine making up in front of the mirror ... I can't usually enter, so I was thrilled to take a picture of the dressing room.

And we arrived at the small hall! Suddenly, a "pipe organ" appears in front of you.

Used for pipe organs and chamber music concerts, this small hall is 13 meters wide, 7.4 meters high, and 6.6 meters deep, making it much more compact than the large halls. But that's nice! You can feel the sound directly on your skin ... you can feel the breathing ... It's a hall full of charm that is different from the big stage.

This pipe organ was built by the organ builders (organ makers) of Johannes Kreis in Germany when it opened in January 1975. It is the first pipe organ in Japan installed in a public hall. Basically, a pipe organ-this is a slang name only in Japan, and strictly speaking, "organ" is made one by one according to the building, considering not only the size and height but also the building materials and environment. There are many things. No two are the same. Only one organ in the world is waiting for you in this small hall of "Kanagawa Kenmin Hall"!

I was very lucky to be able to take a picture of the interview. Because……

Once a month, he appears in numerous concerts in Japan and overseas, including the "Organ Promenade Concert," which was planned to make people feel free to get familiar with the organ, using about 30 minutes of lunch break on weekdays. Yumiko Ogino, an organist who is also the "Kanagawa Kenmin Hall Advisor", came by chance to play the organ! The organ is a delicate creature. It is necessary to "play" between concerts so that the original sound of the instrument can always be produced in the best conditions. It was a great opportunity, so I had them actually perform and also gave me a word about the charm of this small hall. (Professor Ogino, thank you very much for responding to the sudden "Please comment!" With a smile !!!)

"The attraction of this small hall is that it is close to customers. The audience seats are set up at the same height as the stage, so it is a rare feature that you can see the organ playing carefully nearby. It's a wonderful space where the organist feels close to the customer and the customer feels close to the organist. ”(Interview with Yumiko Ogino)

Starting from the lobby of the entrance, we covered a lot of view spots overlooking Yokohama Port, large halls, behind the scenes, and small halls. The architecture is wonderful, and you can rediscover new charms that you haven't noticed before! This year is the 40th anniversary of the opening! A commemorative event is also availableSo please come and visit us.

And here is the performance of Yumiko Ogino who appeared! Why don't you wrap yourself in the majestic and beautiful organ sounds before Christmas?
