  Misao Hatozaki

A flute performer who excites all the senses with her enchanting stream of music.



She was born in Tokyo, Japan, and started to play the flute at the age of thirteen. Later, she graduated from the Department of Instrumental Music (Flute) of the Kunitachi College of Music.

I always try to find a new theme for further development via self-contemplation. By doing so, I etch in my heart the wish not just to play the flute but to express everything I can with tone colors of the instrument.

As a stimulating flautist who entertains the audience not only through sound, but also visually with a personal sense of music and stage effects, I always aim to give performances that appeal to their souls.
