SOUNDS OF EAST ASIA: The group
IIIZ+ (Three Zee Plus) performed for an audience inside the Mansfield
Freeman Center for East Asian Studies Oct. 11. From left to right are Ryuko Mizutani playing a Japanese
koto; Yi-Chieh Lai, playing a Chinese zheng; Il-Ryun Chung playing Korean percussion; and Jocelyn Collette
Clark '92 playing a Korean kayagum. Combining these instruments is not
traditional in East Asia.
Clark, who majored in East Asian studies,
says the ensemble relies on collaborations with contemporary composers
in order to build its repertoire.
At left, Vera Schwarz, director of the
Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies, chair of the East Asian
