Fujin Raijin: Music of Japan

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

This unique concert will feature Japanese music for organ, marimba and Taiko drums, presented by West Michigan-area musicians and visiting performers.

Entitled Fujin Raijin – the Japanese gods of Wind and Thunder, respectively – the program will include works from contemporary Japanese composers for solo organ and solo marimba; a piece written for organ and one Taiko drummer rarely played in the United States; and a newly commissioned piece for the entire ensemble.

The ensemble of accomplished musicians include organist Rhonda Sider Edgington from Holland, MI; percussionist Carolyn Koebel from Kalamazoo; Taiko drumming artist Ken Koshio from Phoenix; marimba player Judy Moonert from Kalamazoo; and members of Michigan Hiryu Daiko Taiko Drummers.
