Enjoy the calming melodic performance of Japanese music with koto player Kyoko Takeda and shakuhachi player Jonathan Crick.
This is the second concert of The Outdoor Summer Music Series, presenting music from world destinations in relaxed outdoor settings. The series ends with a celebration of World Music Day.
Enjoy the calming melodic performance of Japanese traditional music with koto player Kyoko Takeda and shakuhachi player Jonathan Crick, two members of Blue Kanon. These musicians regularly play at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park.
Blue Kanon is a Japanese music ensemble, performing traditional and contemporary music on the Japanese koto (harp) and shakuhachi (flute). The group was formed in 2006, and since then has played for many cultural events in and around San Diego. The Japanese characters for Blue Kanon (舞流華音) translate as "dancing, flowing, brilliant sound." In English, the name suggests the wonderful blue sky and ocean that we enjoy here in San Diego.
This free concert will take place at the East Plaza Gazebo of Seaport Village. Nestled away on the east side of the village, the white gazebo and courtyard are ideal for a relaxing concert experience. Bring a chair or grab one of the picnic tables in the courtyard.
Seaport Village is across the street from the Seaport Village trolley stop, and a short walk from the Sante Fe Train Depot serviced by Amtrak and the San Diego Metro Coaster.
