Currently, Kamei is a member of The Narmen Clarinet Ensemble.
In 2017, he became a recipient of the Aoyama Music Foundation Scholarship and the short term overseas training grant of the Hironao Seki Memorial Culture and Arts Foundation.
My major repertoire includes concertos written by Mozart, Weber, Copland, and Nielsen, and a wide range of works in chamber music as well.
For solos, I have been focusing on French, German, and British pieces; for ensembles, pursuing the possibility of clarinet ensembles from duo to quartet. I have also been actively working on contemporary pieces.
