Join master of Shakuhachi, Marco Lienhard, for a performance and presentation to examine and experience the cultural history of Japanese bamboo flutes. Learn about a variety of flutes, exploring the transformation of their role in society from Japanese court music to their use in modern day movies and music.

Following the presentation, there will be a short hands-on introduction for those interested in learning to play the shakuhachi. A beginning level workshop will follow for those who would like to develop their skill and technique.

Marco Lienhard studied the shakuhachi under Master Katsuya Yokoyama and became a virtuoso solo artist. He also became a professional taiko player, and founded the group Taikoza in 1995. Lienhard now makes his home in New York and tours internationally.

If you have your own shakuhachi, please bring it to the event.
