Yoko Koto Ensemble

May 13 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

The Yoko Koto Ensemble, led by Las Vegas musician Yoko Fitzpatrick, is set to perform traditional Japanese songs in celebration of Asian American & Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The Koto—also called the Japanese Harp — is the official national instrument of Japan. At the end of the performance, audience members will be invited on stage to play a few notes. The ensemble will be accompanied by Yoko’s husband, by Dennis Fitzpatrick, performing the Shakuhachi flute. Whether you’re Japanese or not, Yoko encourages audience members to wear or bring a Kimono to the concert and find out more about the the Yoko Kimono Fun Club, a group that meets and wears their Kimonos to teas and other events.
