"I am no longer trying to write Korean music; nor am I trying not to write Korean music." - Hyo-shin Na, composer

Please join us for an intimate performance that promises to blissfully blur the boundaries of Eastern traditional music and Western contemporary classical. Koto virtuoso Shoko Hikage, a core member of the acclaimed Wooden Fish Ensemble, will play four compositions by innovative composer and Wooden Fish colleague Hyo-shin Na, who will provide an introduction and context for each piece. Following the performance there will be a Q&A session.

Program, for solo koto:
-Koto Music
-Five Pieces on Yoshie Hikage's Poems
-Night Procession of the Hundred Demons
-The Sky Was Beyond Description (for one player on koto and bass koto)
