On Sunday February 23rd at 5:30pm Identity, what does it matter? New Generations in Japan, curated by professor Choki, will feature several living Japanese composers. The concert will be preceded by a lecture by Choki. All but one of the artists have never been presented by MFJ and all of them have rarely, if ever been presented in New York. Both concerts will be followed by open forums with composers, musicologists, critics, and musicians from the US and Japan.
