Japanese Gagaku/Hogaku Ensemble

The Japanese Gagaku/Hogaku Program, a unique offering at Columbia, is a joint initiative of the Department of Music, the Music Performance Program, the Center for Ethnomusicology, and the Institute for Medieval Japanese Studies at Columbia University.

For students in either ensemble, weekly rehearsal attendance and individual practice are required for all members. There will be several public performances during the academic year, and summer mentorship opportunities in Tokyo.
