Japanese Shamisen and Koto performance 7/17/18

July 17th 1pm to 2pm

Mizuka Ohnishi is a Japanese Shamisen and Koto player. She has performed in China, Australia and France, where she has returned annually since 2013. In addition to traditional Japanese music, she has collaborated with others on a variety of non-Japanese musical styles. She teaches at her studios in Yonago-City, Tottori Prefecture and in Tokyo, and at Tottori College, Shimane National University, and the Tottori Cultural Foundation.

Mizuka spent time teaching and visiting with Young Tradition Touring Group members when they visited Japan in November 2017, the first of what is expected to be an ongoing relationship and exchange between young musicians in Vermont and Tottori Prefecture in Japan.
