From the CFA:

Masayo Ishigure began playing the koto at the age of five in Gifu, Japan, and continues to stretch the limits of the thirteen-stringed instrument. She moved to New York City in 1992, and taught koto at Wesleyan University. A musical dialogue between the east and west, this concert features traditional Japanese instruments alongside classical guitar, tap dancing, and percussion. “Koto 360°” includes contemporary compositions by Hikaru Sawai, John Neptune, and a New England premiere by Celil Refik Kaya.
