Kanreki Surprise

KSA's concert celebration of James Nyoraku Schlefer's 60th birthday, honoring him as both a performer and a composer. An evening of surprises - the content a secret from James - the program will include a tribute of musical vignettes (30-60 sec. each) being written for the occasion by over 20 of KSA's commissioned and featured composers. The concert will also feature James in a brief solo performance of his honkyoku "Brooklyn Sanya" (a composition with nearly 300,000 youtube plays).


Please share the celebration – join us to find out who is performing and what they will play!





A Series of Chamber Music Concerts from Two Classical Traditions, Europe and Japan


Arts at Tenri invites you to enjoy chamber music in an ideal setting. Explore the sounds and music of both East and West in an intimate setting with excellent acoustics and accessible ticket prices. Conveniently located near Union Square on 13th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues.

Arts at Tenri offers a unique opportunity to experience two traditions on the same series. Just as European palaces in the 18th and 19th centuries had their court musicians, so too did the Japanese Imperial courts. Today, the music from both of these traditions continues to enchant, and Arts at Tenri offers the best of each.
