Bronwyn Kirkpatrick (shakuhachi master) presents a concert of traditional and original pieces on the shakuhachi, a Japanese bamboo flute universally acclaimed for its connection with the sacred.
The concert will feature Tamuke (‘hands folded in prayer’), which refers to the making of spiritual offerings to the Buddha. A traditional shakuhachi piece used as a prayer for safe passage through life and death, this piece embodies elements of the requiem and the elegy of Western Music.
Get involved and be part of the pre-concert workshop!

BEGINNER SHAKUHACHI WORKSHOP
Wollongong Art Gallery 1-3pm
If you’ve always wanted to try the shakuhachi, now’s your chance! Shakuhachi Master Bronwyn Kirkpatrick will present this workshop and demonstration introducing shakuhachi, the traditional Japanese bamboo flute.
The demonstration/workshop is open to anyone 12 years of age and over and no prior musical experience is necessary.
It will interest students who feel drawn to Asian music and philosophies and people who want to find out more about the shakuhachi and its tradition. It may also be of particular interest to flute and recorder students who are exploring contemporary techniques on their instruments, as many of these techniques are similar to traditional shakuhachi techniques.
There will be a limited number of shakuhachi in D available to try on the day, so please bring your own if you have one. Inexpensive beginner shakuhachi in D (1.8) can be purchased at www.windelfflutes.com.
Suitable for: Anyone from 12 years to 99 years.
Participants are also invited to be observers at the Masterclass from 3.30 to 5.00 pm and to attend the free Sydney Sacred Music Festival by Bronwyn at Wollongong Art Gallery from 7.00 to 8.00 pm
Cost is $40.
