Music director Kishiko Kawaguchi will host a concert Nov. 29 that some Japan Times readers can attend free.

The show has a lengthy title — The 24th Kishiko International Music Concert Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Normalization of Diplomatic Relations Between Japan and Korea Featuring Korean, Chinese and Japanese Traditional Instruments — but at least audiences know what they’re in for.

“This concert aims to contribute to the growth of each country’s music culture,” Kawaguchi says.

Readers who’d like attend should send a postcard marked “Kishiko” to: Ticket Giveaway, The Japan Times, Life & Culture Dept., 4-5-4 Shibaura, Minato-ku, Tokyo 108-8071. Be sure to write down your name, phone number and/or email address. Selected readers will be notified and their names added to a list at the door. The concert takes place at the Japan-China Friendship Center in Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo, on Nov. 29. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Send in applications by Nov. 24.
