"I am no longer trying to write Korean music; nor am I trying not to write Korean music." - Hyo-shin Na, composer
Please join us for an intimate performance that promises to blissfully blur the boundaries of Eastern traditional music and Western contemporary classical. Koto virtuoso Shoko Hikage, a core member of the acclaimed Wooden Fish Ensemble, will play four compositions by innovative composer and Wooden Fish colleague Hyo-shin Na, who will provide an introduction and context for each piece. Following the performance there will be a Q&A session.
