8:00 pm
Elizabeth Brown and Ralph Samuelson

With roots in the principles of Zen Buddhism and in spiritual practice, these traditional Japanese instruments share and underlying aesthetic concept: the discovery of the world that lies within one note, one sound. The program includes traditional music and new compositions by Japanese and American composers.

This program is supported through the Japan Iron and Steel Federation and Mitsubishi endowments at the University of Pittsburgh.
