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.
