Cal Arts Japanese Ensemble
Performing at 2:00 p.m.
Free With Garden Admission

In the exquisite setting of our fall garden, hear the beautiful music of ancient instruments such as the koto (Japanese lute) and sheng (Chinese free reed wind instrument with bamboo pipes) when the Cal Arts Japanese Ensemble performs for us familiar and original compositions.

The ensemble was founded in 2015 at Cal Arts by koto musician and composer, Kozue Matsumoto, and her fellow students and lovers of Japanese sounds.

Since then, this dynamic young group has been performing at various venues around Los Angeles, welcoming more members and expanding their repertoire.

Japanese cultural programming on Open Day is supported by the Japan Foundation, Los Angeles

Also on Sunday…
The Citron Trunk Sale was so popular in August, it will return in November for your holiday shopping!

Come from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. and treat yourself with something to wear for the holiday season or find some gifts. Citron transforms silk and other textiles into contemporary, wearable works of art inspired by Asian traditional patterns.

Also available will be a small selection of authentic Asian clothing, elegant silk scarves, exquisite jewelry, Japanese folk art and other wonderful gift items.

And for our Facebook friends…
Open Day Last Sunday in November will be an opportunity to see the garden with free admission. Members are always free, of course, but this is our way of thanking those who stay in touch with us on Facebook. All you need to do is LIKE our page (see the link below) and come on Sunday, November 27th, Thanksgiving weekend, so we can thank you in person.

Remember: The City of Pasadena prohibits our visitors from parking on the surrounding residential streets. Please follow the signs to park on-site. On Sunday Open Day, parking is also available in the lot we share with the Westridge School on Madeline Drive. It is accessible from Pasadena Avenue.
