What a year! Thousands of people entertained, thousands of students doing hands-on taiko to support their core studies, and thousands of hours of practicing and playing by our group members.
We ended the season with a first by commissioning am original song from Kristy Oshiro of Sacramento Taiko Dan. The song, Sonoran Sway, should be ready to debut in the fall. And believe us, it will get you moving!
Summer means there's a lull in public and school programs, but still plenty to do. This is our window to make new drums, repair equipment and costumes, clean and organize the studio and storage rooms, and focus on playing taiko without the pressure of preparing for performances.
This is also the time for travel and training. OS members will be attending trainings or performing in Moab, L.A., Vancouver B.C. and Maui!
