For classical music fans that want to hear something other than the 12,655th performance of Beethoven's "Fifth Symphony," the Classical Tuesdays in Old Town series every second Tuesday offers rousing performances of accessible music by classical guitarists, sitar musicians, hip young string players and opera in the Slavonian Hall and other Old Town Tacoma venues. Artistic Director Pamela Ryker has set the dates for next year, which is good news for those who enjoy a fresh approach to something old. "Sounds of Japan and Latin America" will feature duo Miho Takekawa on the marimba and Diego Coy playing the quena, a traditional Andean flute, perform distinctive warm, natural wood sounds as they take listeners on a musical journey from Japan to South America. The duo have produced four CDs covering music of the Andes, traditional South American folk, Brazilian, Japanese, jazz and Latin jazz music, as well as original compositions.
