Mari Kawamura’s repertoire includes pieces by William Byrd, late Scriabin, Xenakis, Cage and several contemporary Japanese composers. She has appeared in major festivals around the world (including Tanglewood Music Center, Spoleto Festival USA, and the Darmstadt International Summer Course), with both solo and chamber music concerts. Her 2013 performance of Xenakis’s Dikthas at the SICPP in Boston was described as "an unrelenting volcanic eruption" by the New Music Box.

This event is free and open to the public

Mrs. Kawamura’s appearance is presented in partnership with the Carnegie Mellon University School of Music. The Alia Musica Presents series is supported in part by The Opportunity Fund.
