Kana Kotera, euphonium

Saturday, October 17th, 2015 7:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Concert Hall


Euphonium virtuoso Kana Kotera performs, joined by the Department of Music's Michiko Ogawa (clarinet, Anthony Burr's studio), Tyler Borden (cello, Charles Curtis's studio) and Todd Moellenberg (piano, Aleck Karis's studio). Kotera is an associate professor at Wakayama University and lecturer at Ueno Gakuen University. One reviewer said that Kotera is "a virtuoso of her instrument, judging by the timbral and coloristic command she was able to exert upon the euphonium’s sounds, ranging from cavernous, tuba-like grunts and galumphings to honeyed-tone croonings."
