Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 7 PM. Medford Public Library. 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.
