Mary Lu Brandwein

The concert is at 3:00 pm in the Visitor Center Theater and features the soothing and haunting sounds of the shakuhachi, or Japanese bamboo flute, played by Mary Lu Brandwein. The sound of the flute, used by Zen monks for meditation as well as music, lends itself to inner reflection and peace, according to Brandwein. Traditional and more contemporary pieces will be experienced.
