Tado Gagaku Winter Performance

A big thanks to Shu’uchi (pictured right) for letting me know about this performance. It was great to get the invite and to see Tado Gagaku perform again. This performance was again held at Rokka En (Kuwana Mansion). The first performances were musical, and were held inside the mansion itself, in the Japanese style quarter (the building includes a Victorian-style quarter). Once this indoor performance was done, the audience were then invited to move to the large windowed-doors to view this outdoor performance (seen below), from the warmth and comfort of the building. Some images are now available at Asia Photo Connection (Henry Westheim).
