Date: Sunday, 18 May, 2014
Venue: Kindlehill Performance Space at Steiner School
8 Lake Street, Wentworth Falls
Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm

The event was very successful with a full audience (110 people), who were not only from the nearby community but also from Sydney.

The event comprised the Koto Performances by the members of the Satsuki Odamura Koto Ensemble with Bronwyn Kirkpatrick as a guest Shakuhachi player, and a Chado demonstration. The Chado demonstration was performed with background music called “Chaondo” played and sung by the Koto and Shamisen players. This was the first attempt for both the Koto Ensemble and the Association.
