The Shunsho-no- Hibiki Concert was started in 1995 in order to commemorate the completion of the Iketsukihashi Bridge, a triple-arched bridge built on the west bank of Senzokuike Pond, and featured a performance from the great fue master Sanzaemon Takara, a Living National Treasure. At the end of March this year, the bridge finished undergoing its first reconstruction for twenty years. In celebration of the bridge’s completion, this year’s concert will feature a special collaboration between a Noh actor and players of the fue, shakuhachi and hayashi instruments.
Musicians playing flutes, shakuhachi and accompanying percussion are positioned on the illuminated bridge and platforms floating in the water, creating a dream-like atmosphere.
