Step into a space where otherworldly sounds abound. Led by Ko Ishikawa, master player of the sho (ancient Japanese mouth organ) and internationally active contemporary musician, this program offers selections spanning from medievalgagaku (Imperial Court music) to works by acclaimed music composer Mamoru Fujieda. The program features Fujieda's latest piece Voices of the Spirits, which incorporates the sounds of fermenting shochu (Japan’s distilled alcohol), a highly sacred beverage in Japanese mythology. Ishikawa will be joined by Kayoko Nakagawa on koto and Ami Yamasaki on voice for this musical soiree.
Tickets: $25 /$20 Japan Society members. General Admission.
Cash bar. Come early and explore Japan Society's fall exhibition Simon Starling: At Twilight, which is open and free from 6—8 PM, this evening.
