Concert #6 in Kurashiki

Concert #6 was Thursday 12/15 at Kurashiki-Geibunkan in Kurashiki (Okayama).

During intermission, a quartet plays "Sakura" in the lobby.

After intermission, Jan was able to get a better vantage point for photography from the balcony.


  1. Lookin' good, guys! Michele, what 6-in-hand solo are you playing? And Jim's accompanying on tambourine! Awesome!

    1. Hey Jason -- it's Christine Anderson's "Noël Nouvelet" from "Carols for All Seasons", with added tambourine. We added a repeat to make it longer, so Jim has an 8 bar tambourine solo during which he doubles the tempo. It's to cover the extra-long setup we have for the "Jingle Bells" quartet/"First Noël" segue piece we have this concert, which is why there are people setting up stuff behind us & why it's Jim that's playing tambourine. :-)
