In the GVJCI lobby, I’ll be holding a musician’s garage sale featuring musical instruments and other things we love. The sale will include the koto on which On Ensemble composed and first performed Gengakki (for $175!), a great-condition IBM Selectric typewriter, and a host of other satisfying home and work items.

For those of you attending the meet-the-performers lunch, I’m pleased to let you know our shipment of miracle berry samples has arrived! The extract from these berries is formed into a pill that you dissolve on your tongue and that makes sour things taste sweet. We’ll have a variety of foods for tasting (apparently lemons are incredible)!
Sawada Seijyuuro, the award-winning tsugaru-shamisen player, will be playing a song or two for us at the lunch. He performed at an event we organized in Tehachapi yesterday. It was great! He’s got an amazing dynamic range; from tiny, technical, plucking, to all-out bashing. You’re in for a real treat!
Advance-sale concert tickets are available through midnight tonight! If you’re planning to come, ordering your ticket today makes our job a little easier. Thank you!
Our nine guest artists from Japan have arrived and preparations are well underway! I’m really excited about the opportunity to perform with these fantastic players and to feature nagauta in an On Ensemble concert. Please join us!
