Kabuki Music Performance in San Francisco, Too! – 8/24

In addition to these Oakland performances, we just learned that Saburo and Issa Mochizuki and their group will also be performing Kabuki music on Wednesday, August 24, 7pm, Hotel Kabuki, Japantown, San Francisco. Suggested donation of $25 to benefit the Northern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. All of these performances give an extremely rare chance to hear the spirited, infectious music that is Kabuki Hayashi. Please see the attached flyer for details.

Previous message about Oakland performances:

We have an extremely rare chance to see professional Japanese musicians perform classical Japanese music (hogaku) in Oakland next weekend.

Saburo Mochizuki, who performs at the Kabuki-za and National Performing Arts Theater, is leading the group. Their program includes some nagauta–one of the greatest genres of Kabuki music–including Kagami-Jishi (The Mirror Lion Dance).

Saburo Mochizuki and his colleagues will be in town for the North American Taiko Conference at Stanford next weekend, which some of you might also be interested in: http://www.taikoconference.org/

I'm attaching the flyer for the event, please pass on to all who might be interested. You can reserve tickets by calling 408-315-4229 or emailing kabukimusic2011@yahoo.com (nihongo ok for both!).
