EWU Welcomes Visiting Prof

Japanese faculty exchange...Fosseen-Kusaka, Faculty Exchange

CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University is pleased to announce that Professor Tomoko Narata will visit EWU and the Spokane community May 9-13, as part of an ongoing partnership with Mukogawa Women's University (MWU) in Nishinomiya, Japan. Narata is an outstanding associate professor in the School of Music at MWU.

In tribute to her favorite composers, Narata will perform a piano recital including the works of Liszt and Rachmaninoff. Ms. Narata's piano recital is scheduled from 5:45-7 p.m., Thursday, May 12, at the McNally Recital Hall in the Holy Names Music Center, on the campus of Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute, 3910 W. Custer Dr., Spokane, WA.

Born in Osaka, Japan, Narata started playing piano at age four. Pursuing her passion for music, she graduated from the Faculty of Music in Kyoto City University of Arts with top honors. She also attended the National Conservatory of Music and Dance and the Schola Cantorum, in Paris, as well as completing a master class in Conservatoire National région in Marseille.
In March 2000, she returned to Japan after seven years of studying and performing numerous concerts in France, Italy and the Netherlands; including solo recitals, Ravel's all piano works, chamber music or performing with orchestras as concerto soloist.

During her visit, Narata will work closely with esteemed EWU faculty and professionals throughout the Spokane community. Neal and Helen Fosseen, former mayor and first lady of Spokane, and Akira Kusaka, chancellor of Mukogawa Women's University in Nishinomiya, Japan, jointly established the Fosseen-Kusaka Distinguished Faculty Exchange Endowment in 1994, to enhance the ability of both EWU and MWU to attract, retain and honor distinguished faculty.

Since the program's inception, one professor from each university has visited the other university where they have taught, lectured or performed in the surrounding communities to enable the influence of the exchange to be felt on the campus and beyond.

For more information on the Fosseen-Kusaka Faculty Exchange Program and this year's events, please contact Lauri McLaughlin, EWU International Projects Manager at lmclaughlin@ewu.edu or call 509.359.4536
