Upcoming Events

Nakatani Gong Orchestra
Wednesday, March 25, 8 p.m.
Helen Hills Hills Chapel

The Nakatani Gong Orchestra [NGO] is a non-traditional music orchestra, directed by Tatsuya Nakatani, an acoustic sound artist and percussionist. In creating NGO, Nakatani's aim was to create a rich harmony using a large collection of gongs. The Nakatani Gong Orchestra is the only bowing-based Gong Orchestra in the world. These gongs are played by people from the community who gather before the show to receive instruction in performance techniques and in Nakatani's idiosyncratic conducting language. This orchestra is an ongoing and growing project. It tours regularly and has given over 60 performances since 2011. An accomplished improvisor, Nakatani will also play a solo set on drums and assorted instruments as part of the evening's program. For more information, please see the Facebook Event HERE.
