ASS Brisbane Workshop and Concert
July 6-7, 2024

With Lindsay Dugan and Carl Rathus (shakuhachi),
and Takako Nishibori (koto)

The ASS presents a Brisbane shakuhachi workshop with Carl Rathus and Lindsay Dugan, accompanied by Brisbane-based koto performer Takako Nishibori.

This two-day workshop will include several sankyoku (traditional ensemble music, assisted by Takako), and Yokoyama-style honkyoku. Skills sessions will also be held on both days.

There will also be a public concert held on Saturday for all workshop participants.

All necessary workshop materials (including audio recordings) will be provided after registering.

It's been a while since we've had an in-person ASS shakuhachi workshop. These get togethers are good for learning or revisiting repertoire, meeting new folks or old friends we haven't seen for a while, and also a great opportunity to publicly perform shakuhachi in a supportive environment! Plus we have Takako with us for the Saturday, which is an absolute treat.

Bardon Hall, 247b Simpsons Road, Bardon QLD 4065 (parking available)
