About the Event

After a fractured year of some live and some online music, marked for Brandon Lee by a series of cross cultural collaborations, this 2022 post lockdown concert presents an invitation to revisit the classic koto repertoire.

Brandon says: “I think it’s important to go back to focusing on some of the great koto compositions. There are still so many koto pieces that people haven’t heard yet.

Working with the Koto Ensemble this year will be flute player Amla Periakarpan. The combination of a wind instrument and a wind themed composition for koto inspired the selection of this year’s title for the 2022 concert for Matsudo Week in Whitehorse.

One of Australia’s longest standing Sister City relationships, Whitehorse annually renews a post-war gesture of peace, through its partnership with Matsudo in Japan. Annually The Boite embraces this collaborative opportunity to work with musicians specialising in the music of Japan.

This year’s concert offers listeners the subtle delicacy and the powerful drive that mark the music of Japanese koto in the hands of Brandon Lee and his ensemble players.

Entry $30; $20 concession
