Join us for a celebration of the centennial anniversary of the peony garden at Nichols Arboretum!

The program will include a preformace by "Pungnyu in the Peony Garden". Featuring a variety of traditional Korean instruments and genres including: danso, haegeum, janggu, geomungo, piri, pansori.

Pungnyu means ‘wind and stream,’ and it represents the connection Korean traditional music has to nature. The sounds are produced by instruments made of materials such as bamboo, silk, and aged wood, creating sonorities reminiscent of the wind blowing through grass and the rustling of leaves. This performance celebrates the beauty of our natural world and encourages us to sit, listen, and drink up the beauty of our surroundings.
