"Classic and Modern Music for Japanese Instruments" to kick off Taylor Time series



The Taylor Time concert series kicks off Monday, Sept. 28 at 5 p.m. in Emerson Auditorium in the Taylor Music Center.

James Nyoraku Schlefer and Yoko Reikano Kimura will present “Eastern Light: Classic and Modern Music for Japanese Instruments.” Schlefer is a grand master of the shakuhachi and one of only a small number of non-Japanese artists to have achieved that honor. Kimura performs classical Japanese music in the Yamada school-style and is an active proponent of contemporary music for Japanese instruments.

The duo will also conduct a workshop with students in “Encounters with East Asian Music Cultures” class on Sept. 29.
