Opening concert for Japan Month
Japan month starts off with a proper concert in the University of Tartu Museum White Hall! Mizuki Shindo on flute and Anneli Tohver on piano will caress our ears with the music from Estonia and Japan. Estonian music is chosen from the chamber music composed by Heino Eller, who was a resident of Tartu, and his pupil Lepo Sumera. There are little chamber music pieces for flute and piano put together to represent Japanese music as well as some settings of film music.
The concert will take place on the 6th of September 2016 at 19:00 at the University of Tartu Museum White Hall (Lossi 25, 3rd floor). Tickets are available for purchase on site (in cash) and are 6€ each.
