Cerritos creative rehearsals underway

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Patrick and Kelvin are in town for the week to work on the music for our big performance at Cerritos. It’s such a treat to have the full On Ensemble quartet in town… and Patrick continues to amaze… We’re learning his wonderfully challenging piece, Brilla, and reworking many of our pieces.

Our new headquarters is fantastic! We’ve got things set up and the shop is very comfortable. I think this will be the spot where much great music is produced!

Next up: TAIKO 2.0 at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Our TAIKO 2.0 collaboration with Russel Baba, Jeanne Mercer, Kaoru Watanabe and Patrick Graham at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts is coming Saturday March 12th at 8pm!  Russel, Jeanne, Kaoru and Patrick are four of our favorite artists to work with.  We’ve been working on new material and it’s going to be one of best concerts to date!  We’ve also added another special guest artist Kodo’s principal dancer Chieko Kojima.  Chieko is on tour this month in the US and we were able to work out her schedule to have her join us for a special performance on the Cerritos stage.  Tickets are on sale now and are available through the Cerritos Center box office.

Patrick in town, On Ensemble in new space!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

We’ve moved into the shop at the Japan America Theater! I’m really excited about our upcoming year there. It’s quite a bit more space than we’re used to and it’s a treat to be in Little Tokyo and in constant contact with the JACCC.

Patrick arrived on Thursday evening and we spent Friday recuperating from our respective crazy schedules. We took a hike at Vasquez Rocks, had a picnic, and went to Griffith Observatory; a rare moment of down time for On Ensemble with Patrick in tow. We’re looking forward to a week of rehearsals with Kelvin set to arrive. More fun to come!
