All About the Japanese  Flute with Elizabeth Reian Bennett

In this performance and talk, Elizabeth will introduce the shakuhachi: how it is made, played and the culture in which it is rooted. This will be followed by a selection of pieces from the early days of the wandering monks, the later ensemble repertory, and a composition written for her by local composer John McDonald.

Supported in part by the Medford Arts Council and by the Friends of the Medford Public Library, and specially promoted by Arts Across Medford
