We've had a blast this fall with residencies at Prince Elementary, and OMA Taiko at Cavett Elementary and Maxwell K-8. We rocked Tucson Meet Yourself and set the pace at the All Souls Procession, two of our most-cherished annual events. Rounding out the season, we were honored by visit from sensei Kenny Endo, who took time on his 40th Anniversary Tour to teach a workshop at our studio with Kaoru Watanabe.
Now, winter is upon us, marked by our annual taiko marathon at Tucson Marathon on Dec. 6! Cookies and wooly hats will abound!
Change being the only constant, our big news is that co-founder/director Rome Hamner will be departing at the end of 2015 to enter San Jose Taiko's audition process. We wish her the best with her new endeavor!
For 2016, we have several incredible projects, such as the Jan. 30 production of 88 Hachi Hachi by Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe.
We were incredibly honored by a visit from sensei
Kenny Endo on Nov. 18. Together with Kaoru
Watanabe, he introduced us to interlocking hogaku
rhythms that made our brains
much bigger :)
