Aratani World Series at JACCC

The Aratani World Series is a joint project of the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) and the Foundation for World Arts (World Festival of Sacred Music). Audiences are invited to experience the long cherished artistic and cultural practices of our diverse world. Based at the Aratani Theatre in downtown Los Angeles’ Little Toyko district, the Aratani World Series offers concerts of the highest professional level while at the same time speaks to the linkages our diverse city has to the rest of the world.

We urge you to get a Aratani World Series “passport” and travel alone or with friends. Like all travel, we learn about others while provoking personal reflection on what is means to be a citizen of our world.

We look forward to our third season Feb-June 2017!
Series Curator and Producer, Judy Mitoma
