Taiko in Maine, 5/6 and 5/23

May 30, 2010

The Colby taiko class and club had their final performances outside the Colby Art Museum on Thursday, 5/6. It was a beautiful day and both ensembles performed impressively. Special thanks to Lauren Lessing, curator of education, who helped organize the whole event.

Our last performance for the school year was at the college’s baccalaureate ceremony on Saturday, 5/23. Five students stuck around campus to perform (Doug Newkirk, Rhiannon Ledwell, Max Hogue, Cosme Del Rosario-Bell, and Lyoe Lee) and my friend Kaoru Watanabe came up to play fue. This was a great group of taiko drummers and I’ll miss working with them. Thanks for an incredible semester!
