Overtures: Artist Concert Series
Andy Akiho, composer/percussionist
In recognition of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the Centennial Celebration of the Gift of Trees from the people of Tokyo to the people of Washington, D.C., the S&R Foundation presents seven prominent artists in a series of concerts. Each artist will perform an existing composition that has been repurposed with a focus on the Centennial, allowing the artists an opportunity to express how they view the Centennial--be it springtime, friendship, love of country--through their instrument and music. The Artist Concert Series performances take place in the Terrace Theater, which was constructed in the late 1970s as a Bicentennial gift from the people of Japan to the people of the United States.
Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
