Venue Marc A. Scorca Hall, The National Opera Center America

New York based Duo YUMENO - Yoko Reikano Kimura (koto/Japanese 13-string zither, shamisen/Japanese long-neck lute and voice) and Hikaru Tamaki (violoncello) - presents a concert of contemporary works, as well as classical Western and Japanese music.

The duo is celebrating the recent release of its first album, Flowers, Birds, Wind, Moon: The Music of Marty Regan, which features the first and only significant duo written for koto and violoncello.

The concert will also feature newly commissioned works by the renowned composer Daron Hagen and by Yoko Satō.
