15th Annual Otsukimi Moon Viewing Celebration
The Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth and Crow Collection of Asian Art will present the 15th annual Otsukimi celebration at a new location – Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas – with a variety of performances and activities.
String duo Kaori Yoshida, violinist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and Naoko Nakamura, principal harpist of the Dallas Wind Symphony, will perform popular Japanese folk melodies for autumn. The program will also feature shakuhachi (bamboo flute) master Stan Richardson, the Greater Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra, and the Japanese ladies’ chorus Cosmos, plus Japanese folk tales, haiku, ikebana, and art activities for young and old alike. The Perot Museum, participating in Otsukimi for the first time, will provide large telescopes and experiments that offer a different view of the moon.
Bring your picnic supper and lawn chair for a contemplative evening under the full autumn moon. You can also pre-order a “Japanese fusion” obento from Savor for $20.
