A Series of Chamber Music Concerts from Two Classical Traditions, Europe and Japan
YOU ARE INVITED!
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.
