Marimba Extraordinaire Makoto Nakura at 60 – A Retrospective

Saturday, May 4, 2024 at 7:30pm

Makoto started building his distinctive career as a marimbist as soon as he arrived in NYC from Japan 30 years ago. This concert shows his journey through the works which he has commissioned along the way. These works from today’s leading composers showcase the expressive possibilities of the marimba…expressive possibilities that keep expanding under Makoto’s ever-growing collection of mallets! You are sure to have a great time not only hearing extraordinary music, but also meeting this extraordinary artist and human being who always gives his audience an incredible show. Don’t forget to wish him a happy 60th birthday if you attend!

More info on the rest of the season may be found by visiting musicareginae.org. Advance ticket purchase is recommended but tickets will be available at the door starting one hour prior to performance. Cash and credit card accepted at the door.
