Directed by Kyoko Okamoto, the UMD Japanese Koto Ensemble features elegant music played on the koto, a traditional Japanese 13-string instrument. Koto music reflects the quiet beauty, simplicity and harmonizing effect of Japanese nature. This concert is a joint venture with the Washington Toho Koto Society, also directed and founded by Kyoko Okamoto. This is a local nonprofit group of koto players and friends, primarily from the DC metro area.
