The Green Show

Monday, June 29th, 2009

greenshowWe had a great performance at the Green Show today! Thanks to Claudia, Jess and all the Green Show volunteers.  It was great being back in Ashland and it’s starting to feel like a second home now that Kelvin is living there and we find ourselves performing there for the second time in two months.  We even made the Green Show poster complete with a nice shot of the LA skyline.

We’ll be spending the next couple of days in Mt. Shasta getting some creative rehearsal time in with Kelvin before we head back down to Los Angeles.  More later!

Oregon Bach Festival

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

We had a great sold-out performance tonight at the Oregon Bach Festival.  Our stay in Eugene has been fantastic and we’d like to thank John Evans, Michael Anderson and the OBF staff for bringing us to their amazing festival.  We’d also like to thank the great theater and sound crew at the Hult Center for making our concert go so smoothly.  Also a huge thank you goes our to our lighting designer Eileen Cooley for all of her artistry and work.  And last but definitely not least thank you to the members of Portland Taiko who helped us pack up and load out!

Tomorrow we head down to Ashland for a performance at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Green Show.  More later!

Oregon Bach Festival

Friday, June 26th, 2009

obf1We are currently in the beautiful city of Eugene OR for the Oregon Bach Festival.  Yesterday we performed at the opening of On the Road: Two Visions of the Tokaido at the University of Oregon’s Jordon Schnitzer Museum.  We spent today in the theater preparing for tomorrow’s concert and got a nice write up in the Eugene Register-Guard.

Tonight we’re going to watch Helmuth Rilling conduct a performance of Joseph Haydn’s The Creation at the Oregon Bach Festival.  Should be great concert!

OnEnsemble.org email back up

Well, I’m not sure what the problem was, but a reboot has fixed our previous email issue.  Sorry for the inconvenience!

OnEnsemble.org email currently down

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Argh! The On Ensemble email server seems to be down. Messages sent to OnEnsemble.org are being bounced back. We’re on tour at the moment so I can’t reboot the machine. We get home on July 3rd so I’ll fix it then.

In the meantime, if you need to contact us, please call me at 310-350-8825. My apologies for the inconvenience!

Warehouse

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Bryan from TAIKOPROJECT has been obsessed with finding a warehouse for TAIKOPROJECT’s new home.  We’re close.  This might be it!

It’s a great space.  It will take a bit of work to fix the place up to our satisfaction, but once it’s finished, this will be a great space to be in.  Practices, rehearsals, small concerts, recordings, retreats… this will be a great resource!  And hopefully On can help pitch in to use it too…  =)

A taiko group always dreams of having a nice, big, open space.  I hope this works out.
