Tatsuya Nakatani, an acoustic sound artist and master percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan returns to Urbana-Champaign as part of Improvisers Exchange, an upcoming CAS initiative.

The Nakatani Gong Orchestra offers a unique, transformative experience for performers and audiences as rich harmonies produced from multiple layers of bowed gongs envelop listeners. A specialized training workshop on gong performance and conduction techniques developed by Nakatani will be offered on the day of performance to fifteen local participants from campus and community. If you'd like to volunteer to perform in this concert, please contact Jason Finkelman at finkelma@illinois.edu listing "NGO participant" in the header.
