I had a couple of reasons to join the orchestra.
Firstly, I enjoy playing classical compositions with a full orchestra: brass, woodwind, and all. Having an outlet for my violin practice and performance in the form of an orchestra drastically helps me improve as I’m also surrounded by all these like-passionate musical companions.
Secondly, the social aspect of joining a club was appealing to me. As a foreigner trying to learn Japanese, it’s helped me passively intake Japanese as well as actively trying to converse with everyone.The aforementioned club mates are all compassionate caring people that’s helped me so much when I’m very restricted with my language skills, both spoken and especially written.
