Zen Shakuhachi Concert & Meditation with Grandmaster Cornelius Boots
Sunday, March 19 at 4 PM
Free for Pitt Students, General Admission Tickets are $20
Cornelius Boots presents the living tradition of shakuhachi — the rare bamboo flute from ancient Japanese Buddhism.  Meditation, music and nature form the roots of this earthy and ephemeral performing art.  Natural bore (jinashi) and larger, low-pitched flutes (bass or alto) flutes are featured on this program: they provide a strong connection – for both the player and the listener – to a deeper, almost primeval past: echoes from the ancient days of the Earth.
