2017 / Fundraising concert to showcase Yukiko Matsuyama’s koto music at South Pasadena Public Library, April 14

Yukiko Matsuyama

‘East-West’ Fundraising Concert will be held on the ‘Carnegie Stage’ of the South Pasadena Public Library Community Room on Friday, April 14 at 8 p.m. The beautiful, historic Community Room is located at 1115 El Centro Street.  Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and seating will be “festival style”—first come, first seated.

This concert will present international recording artist Yukiko Matsuyama & her band, and an ‘Unplugged’ performance by Wildwood Highway- a tightknit Classic Rock-styled unit.

Yukiko Matsuyama, playing the koto, will infuse Japanese melodies with contemporary jazz, pop, and new age elements.  Wildwood Highway, a tightknit unit mixing original and cover songs, will showcase their impressive instrumental abilities blended with their soaring three part harmonies.

Tickets are $25 each and are available at www.southpasadenaeclecticfriendslibraryconcert.eventbrite.com.

All proceeds will benefit the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library and The Eclectic Friends of the Arts of South Pasadena, both 501 (c) 3 nonprofits.

In addition, the organizations will be two of the major co-sponsors of the 2017 Eclectic Music Festival on May 6 in South Pasadena that will bring a wealth of free concerts to a wide variety of venues, all within walking distance of each other.

‘East-West’ Fundraising Concert is supported by the South Pasadena Public Library, the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, DeepMix, SPARC (the South Pasadena Arts Council), and 210eastsound!.
