Support “The Art of Shamisen”

“The Art of Shamisen – Japanese Three-Stringed Lute” will be presented by the Nihon Buyo Kai of California at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance on Saturday, September 29, 2018, in a 2:00 matinee.  This unique program will feature eight guest artist musicians from Tokyo, led by Honjoh Hidetaro, composer, performer, consultant, and Headmaster of the Honjoh School of Shamisen. The focus will be to introduce the shamisen and traditional music of Japan to American audiences through narratives, explanations, demonstrations and on-stage interviews in a bilingual and multimedia presentation.  The day after the program, two workshops at the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute will be led by Master Honjoh Hidetaro to those interested in a beginner’s session, with free shamisen rental, or an intermediate/experienced session for advanced players.

Please support this professional presentation through a tax-deductible corporate gift that will share an important cultural legacy hundreds of years old and bridge our diverse communities through music and dance.  With your donation, we will feature your ad and/or company logo in our event program which will be distributed to attendees of the 500-seat theater.  Your support for the program will also be acknowledged on our website.
