Greetings All, if you are in Tokyo on May29th, you have the opportunity to catch a star-studded hogaku cast performing in the 80th anniversary concert of the jiuta shamisen/koto group GinMei Kai headed by Fujii Hirokazu with Fujii Akiko at Kokuritsu Kaikan (National Theater). Aside from the Fujiis this concert will feature 4 living national treasures of Japan (人間国宝): Aoki Reibo, Yanase Shouin, Yamamoto Hozan and Yonekawa Toshiko. Also appearing on shakuhachi will be Aoki Shoji, Kawase Junsuke, Kawase Yousuke, Kobayashi Reijo, Tsurugi Kodo, Doi Genzan, Matsumura Houmei, and the list goes on. 27 pieces will be performed in this event. Personally, I'm envious of anybody who can attend.

Well Brian, aside from the 50,000 yen + price tag that would accompany that concert, I committed to play in a golf tournament before I heard of the concert. So, I'll have to rely on my sensei's first hand commentary afterward since he's playing in it. I'll report on what he says. Mr. Green

not exactly...prior commitment combined with excessive expenditure trumps future passion...but then, I'm completely sure I'll enjoy the round, too.
