2021 / CalArts Japanese Ensemble presents Music, Sound and Movement from Japan Online Guest Artist Series, Mondays, Feb. 8 through May 3

Forwarded for CalArts Japanese Ensemble

We are super excited to invite all these wonderful artists from all over the USA and JAPAN!

They will talk about and demonstrate what Japanese music, sounds, and movements are like and how they have been developing and practiced throughout history and in our time.

We will see tradition as constant evolution and learn some of the contemporary approaches to the arts originated from Japan.

Since we are still all online this semester, we took advantage of it and were able to bring these artists.

Please contact us at kmatsumoto@calarts.edu if you are interested to join and learn!

Mondays at 8pm
Admission: free
Please RSVP at kmatsumoto@calarts.edu
