CalArts Japanese Ensemble Virtual Performance

The event on Thursday, December 16th, 2-4pm, is a hybrid gathering of CalArts Japan Ensemble participants and faculty. Students will present both pre-recorded and live performances of traditional folk song group pieces they worked on all semester. There will also be individual pieces performed: experimental original compositions, using the sounds of Japanese instruments they have studied: koto, shamisen or shakuhachi. Faculty who will attend include Rachel Rudich, shakuhachi, and Kozue Matsumoto, koto and shamisen. Guest faculty we hope will also be in attendance: Wells Leng and Richard An, taiko and shinobue.
