Art Cart: Contemporary Japanese Music
Explore modern interpretations of traditional Japanese music and musical instruments. Participants attend an intimate performance and workshop by koto player Yumi Kurosawa, who will demonstrate the differences between the conventional 13-string and modern 20-string koto, and play both traditional songs as well as her own compositions. Followed by a hands-on craft activity where children will make their own simple musical instruments.
Recommended for children ages 6–12 and accompanying adults.
Tickets: $15 per family (up to 5 people), $10 per family, including at least one Japan Society member. Please call the Box Office at (212) 715-1258.
