Rio Sakairi: Cultivating a Small Space for Big Talent

Furnished with an old sofa and some folding chairs facing the small stage, The Jazz Gallery is quiet and empty except for Sakairi, her six year old son and eight year old daughter playing in the around the chairs, and the two interns, men in their twenties who enter with acoustic guitars on their backs. As the artistic director, she runs the one room performance space on Broadway and 27th street almost single handedly. Though it is quiet during the day, three nights a week it turns into a nonprofit performance space bustling with musicians and an audience of Gallery members, who pay $75 a year for discounted tickets to all the shows, and visitors. Originally from Ibaraki, Japan, Sakairi was introduced to classical music at a young age. Instead she went into business. Their professional paths crossed in 2000.
