Broadway Center / Collegiate Taiko Invitational wrap-up
We have just returned from a fantastic trip to Tacoma and UC Davis.
Tacoma’s Broadway Center for the Performing Arts presented On Ensemble at the Rialto Theater. We did a performance for elementary school kids, a hands-on workshop, and an evening performance for the public. This was our first theater performance with Chris Hartz sitting in for Kelvin. The show turned out really well and the audience was very enthusiastic. Thank you, Tacoma!
Maz and I then continued on to UC Davis to teach at the annual Collegiate Taiko Invitational, hosted this year by Bakuhatsu Taiko Dan. Maz taught a workshop on multi-drum taiko as a representative of TaikoProject and I taught slant drum form and my most recent thoughts on bon festival taiko, representing On Ensemble. Maz and I then did a joint session on composition. Thank you to Jackson and all the Invitational coordinators!
