About Kyo-Shin-An Arts:
Kyo-Shin-An Arts is a contemporary music organization with a mission to bring Japanese instruments – specifically koto, shakuhachi and shamisen – to Western classical music. KSA works in partnership with established chamber ensembles, orchestras and great individual performers to bridge two musical cultures. It introduces composers, players and audiences to the beauty and versatility of Japanese instruments and the virtuosity of the musicians who play them. Concerts feature a blend of KSA commissions, other World, American and NY premieres, traditional and contemporary music for Japanese instruments and Western repertoire. Founded in 2009, Kyo-Shin-An Arts presents its NYC chamber music season at the Tenri Cultural Institute in Manhattan. KSA has been recognized with two CMA/ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming (2013 and 2016).
