Tickets for these concerts are $15 each and are available through Yamaha
Artist Services at 212-339-9995 ext. 227 or Weaving Japanese Sounds at
212-932-9582.

Both programs show a wide spectrum of Japanese musical culture in the
21st Century and include light hearted music influenced by popular
culture, music that represents the rapid economic growth and industrialization
of the 60's and 70's, music that is deeply rooted in Japanese folk
culture, music infused with the Japanese sense of tranquility and timing
(typified by Noh), and finally, music that reveals a great confluence
of other cultures in this rapidly shrinking world of the late 20th and
early 21st centuries.

Not only do these programs reveal various musical trends, but they
also show a wide range in composers' generations and gender.  Some of
the composers whose works will be represented are already very well
established statesmen of music, while others are emerging young composers.
Special attention was given to introduce young composers who are creating
their own sounds in New York.  More about these composers online at
http://www.jamesarts.com/releases/march05/JComposers_030905.htm.

Artist Services, Inc.  (YASI) has gained widespread recognition for its
professional service and devotion to the global performing arts community.

in 1994.  Since then, she has been performing extensively throughout the

Angeles, and Old First Church and Crocker Art Museum in San Francisco,
