New York’s music scene reflects the diverse and vibrant culture of the city. Kimura, together with Center for Remembering and Sharing, started this concert series in the fall of 2015. As a Japanese instrumentalist, she hopes to introduce the brilliance of traditional Japanese music, which is still being passed on to the next generation after many centuries. Over 30 works from the classical repertoire were performed in the concert series, and from this season, the series will feature contemporary pieces as well. Come and experience the sounds of koto and shamisen and enjoy the taste of the four seasons here in New York!
