     “Shakuhachi-The Empty Bell”

    Lunchtime Recital Series

    Teacher and Recitalist Dr. Nora Nohraku Suggs will be sharing her expertise of the history and traditions of traditional Japanese bamboo flute, originally played exclusively by Zen Buddhist monks as a spiritual tool to seek enlightenment. Over the centuries, this music has been passed down from teacher to student in an unbroken tradition, and today is heard in concert halls around the world. Most of the music for shakuhachi is over three centuries old, and is still considered to be some of the most haunting and meditative music of any culture.

     F142 Studio Theater. Free Admission.
