Senryu is proud to present a new song for this year’s Spring Concert, Benzaiten by Ashton Culbertson!
Benzaiten, one of the Seven Gods of Good Fortune, is the Japanese Buddhist goddess of “everything that flows.” Along with good fortune she brings luck, persuasion, and seduction. She is often depicted riding a dragon with snakes as her messengers. Previously untitled, the piece was given the name Benzaiten because of its use of fluid motion and subtle imitations of snakes.
Come out to our Spring Concert on May 14 to experience the debut of this song! Tickets are available at the Fine Arts Box Office located at the University Theater at UCR.
Students – $8
General – $10
At the Door – $12
Doors will open at 5:30pm and the show starts at 6:00pm
