I hope that you can join us for our 11th Annual KiSuiAn Shakuhachi Camp.
It will take place from August 9, 2013 - August 12, 2013, in Chester, PA, at a Retreat House names TEMENOS.
The Eleventh Annual East Coast Shakuhachi Camp is an idea that has grown out of the excellent work that has been done at the five International Shakuhachi conventions and the annual Shakuhachi Summer Camps held in Colorado. We sincerely hope to supplement this work, and to provide a learning experience on the Shakuhachi to people on the East Coast who may not be able to travel. We are very happy that last year's Shakuhachi camp was such an overwhelming success.
This year we will again feature work on the Shakuhachi with the Honkyoku and the Sankyoku (Trio) Repetoire. The duration of the camp will last its usual 4 days. Please visit <http://www.nyogetsu.com/camp.php> for more detailed information about the Camp, incuding the daily schedule and the costs. (Note that there is a $100 discount for registering before June 1st.
We would like to invite individuals whose instruments are the Shamisen as well as the Koto.
The camp program includes four classes per day with the following Shakuhachi Masters: Kurahashi Yodo Sensei, Ronnie Nyogetsu Reishin Seldin, Robert Nyosei Kline, Kurt Nyoshun Findeisen, Jorge Alfano and Mutsumi Takamizu on Koto and Shamisen. In addition all Campers will get two private lessons with the staff members of their choice. Registration begins at 10:30AM on Friday, August 9, 2013, and the Camp ends at 12:00 (noon) Monday, August 12, 2013.
Students will be able to take part in other optional activities such as Za-Zen, and Tai Chi Chuan. There will be time to schedule additional private lessons with the guest instructors. This year we will have the new, highly recommended (sustainable) cooking of the Northbrook Caterers doing the Catering for all of our meals.
The 2013 Shakuhachi Camp is a very exciting project and we are very encouraged by the amount of enthusiasm we have received. We look forward to sharing this wonderful Take no Michi (Path of Bamboo) with a large fellowship of players from many varied backgrounds.
Please feel free to contact me personally at <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you have any questions.
See you at Camp!
