Aya Shimada / Voice Trainer
Born in Otaru , Hokkaido , Japan . While attending high school, she won a gold prize in the High School division of the First Hokkaido Mainichi Vocal Competition. She received B.A. in Music at Tokyo National University of Fine Art & Music. She performed in numerous operas and concerts including the Young Musicians Concert at the Sapporo Civic Art Festival and Opera Le Nozze di Figaro. She then came to the United States and studied at Mannes College of Music Extension Division where she received a diploma with honors. While expanding her repertoire from classical to gospel music, she has been directing Japanese women chorus groups such as Harmony Basket in New Jersey and Hanamizuki in Westchester County and is a voice trainer for the New York Mixed Chorus. In addition, she has been a song leader at New York Japanese Church in Tuckahoe. She is also a proposer and music director of the "Choral Festival of Japan", first joint event by various Japanese chorus groups in the New York Metropolitan Area held annually for five years since June 2009. She is highly acclaimed for her performance at the United Nations Population Award ceremony in New York since 2000. Outside Japan and the New York metropolitan area, she has performed in Mexico and Canada as well. My only music experience was singing in a chorus club during my elementary school years.   I decided to join NYMC after I saw their performance at a concert and was touched by their performance. After I joined NYMC, I was singing alto for a while since my natural voice is low; however, our voice trainer, Ms. Aya Shimada and our music managers recommended me to sing soprano, so since then, I have been singing soprano at NYMC. At home, I listen to NYMC practice songs from Youtube, but generally, I do not listen to music much.
