Kizuna Concert in Rikuzen Takata, Japan
Date: 29th June 2019, Saturday
Venue: Singapore Hall, Rikuzentakata Community Hall
We’re delighted to be part of this concert in support of the continued effort to rebuild the homes and lives of those affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami! This will be a combined concert between KotoKottoN and other traditional Japanese music musicians from both Singapore and Japan.
Started in 2009 by Ms. Kitai Saeko, KotoKottoN is a koto ensemble based in Singapore, with weekly practices even through the university holidays. While Ms. Kitai is a Japanese language teacher at the Centre for Language Studies, NUS, she is also a qualified teacher from the Sawai Koto School (沢井箏曲院).
KotoKottoN is constantly looking for new members who are interested in learning the instrument. Registration and lessons are absolutely free of charge for all NUS students. However, as with any subject you take, we hope that interested parties can commit to practice twice a week.
