If you're looking for an unusual and memorable concert during the holidays, how about listening to "White Christmas" and other Christmas classics on a marimba? Numerous well-known melodies from Disney classics like "Just a Spoon Full of Sugar" and theme songs from "Alice in Wonderland", etc. will also be featured. Yoshitake Akase, an accomplished "marimbaist" (or whatever a person who plays the marimba is called), will be accompanied by Nami Takase on the piano.
The concert will be held at the Capio theater, a relatively small auditorium of about 350 set up in an opera house style that allow all seats to be quite close to the stage for excellent viewing. Tickets are 3000 yen for all seats. Further information is available at 21-1295.
