Four Seasons in NY

New York, where Yoko Reikano Kimura is based, is culturally diverse, and its music scene reflects the rich variety from around the world. As a Japanese instrumentalist, Kimura hopes to introduce the brilliance of classical Japanese music, which is still being passed on to this day for many centuries, and started this concert series in the fall of 2015. The series has been held at Center for Remembering and Sharing’s White Room near Union Square, and features each season’s representative traditional musical works along with colorful and delicate Japanese style confectionaries prepared by mochi Rin.
