Pacific Exchange

It is a concert series that brings composers and performers who call the Pacific Ocean home, together on a single concert stage. Thingamajigs created this event in 2000 to provide a venue to share ideas, influences, and audiences with our ocean neighbors. The intention is to continue the rich history of such artistic exchanges in the Bay Area, and highlight their importance to our expressive local culture. The concerts have exhibited the music of composers from Japan, Korea, Chile, Peru, New Zealand and the United States. The performance group Tov, Megumi Matsuhashi, Jean Ann, Kiyoshi Suzuki, Edward Schocker, Shizuka Takeuchi, Tomoko Sogabe, Akiko Hasegawa, Niji Ito and Soo-Yeon Lyuh are just a few of the artists that have been featured by this series.
