Please join us for our upcoming series of Meet the Artist virtual concerts!
Whether you’re an experienced taiko player or someone looking forward to seeing taiko for the very first time, a Meet the Artist event as presented by Mark H will be an evening of taiko that you’ll never forget.
Anything can happen at Meet the Artist – we’ve had Mongolian throat singing (courtesy of Shoji Kameda), ukelele (courtesy of Kenny Endo’s special guest, Abe Lagrimas, Jr), spontaneous storytelling (courtesy of Mark H and Kris Bergstrom), and audience members helping to create a special, improvisational piece (courtesy of Tiffany Tamaribuchi).
This winter, we’re ready to help you fight off the cold-weather blues with a special Meet the Artist series featuring our amazing CONNECT 2021 instructors! Help us keep the CONNECT spirit going until we’re all able to get together safely in person once more and join us for an evening of performance and conversation on Zoom.
These are FREE concerts, but you will need to register since there are a limited number of virtual seats available.
Our first Meet the Artist: Yurika Chiba!
Our first event in the series, featuring Yurika Chiba, is coming up on Friday, November 20 at 8:00pm EST.
With more great events coming soon!
Next up is David Wells in December, followed by Unit Souzou in January 2021 and Ryo Shimamoto in February 2021. Stay tuned – all the details on those events are coming your way soon.
We can’t wait to hear these awesome artists play some of their favorite pieces, share works-in-progress, discuss their influences, answer audience questions, and more – and we hope you can join us!
