Experience storytelling through live music at Music from Home, a monthly series of house concerts featuring repertoire which reflects and honors the lived experience of each artist. Oregon Koto-Kai invites you on a special musical journey in the beautiful and peaceful Lakewold Gardens. Watch and listen as Mitsuki Dazai, Josh Faber-Hammond, Amy Shoemaker, and Rena Takahashi perform a new program of koto ensemble music in 3 parts. The three parts are classical Japanese music, contemporary music, and Western music. The Koto, or 13-string zither, has over a thousand-year history in Japan. The structure of the instrument is simple yet has so many possibilities. At Strings Across Time and Space, Music from Home guests will learn how koto music has adapted through the flow of time, tradition, and space itself. Guests will also get to enjoy a delicious bite from Uwajimaya provided by Food from Home sponsors. Get your ticket today!
