Gagaku and Bugaku Classical Music and Dance
October 16, 2013
UMass Amherst Campus
The Kitanodai Gagaku Ensemble presents a classical Japanese art form with a rich, thousand-year history.
The ancient and imperial court music of the gagaku orchestra and dances is the oldest orchestral tradition in the world – a style of music that has remained pure and unchanged over the centuries. Elegant and ethereal the music of gagaku is nearly always experienced in an almost otherworldly way with a unique and poetic sound that washes over you as it reflects the music of the cosmos.
Bowker Auditorium is located within Stockbridge Hall. https://fac.umass.edu/Online/default.asp?doWork::WScontent::loadArticle=...
