Celebrating over two decades of artist directed performance, Taiko Legacy is a perennial commemoration bringing together professional contemporary and classical performers alongside enduring community members to produce one of the largest Taiko drumming concerts in the Midwest. The melodic depths of the taiko ensemble performance are explored by multigenerational ensemble Tsukasa Taiko, using original compositions and arrangements from a broad range of musical styles including: ozashiki (geisha chamber music), minyo (folk music),ohayashi (classical/folk/theater music), and matsuri taiko (festival music).|
This year's featured guests include Melody Takata and the Gen Ensemble of San Francisco, classical music grandmasters from Japan, Chizuru Kineya, and Takane Umeya, with local grandmaster Yoshinojo Fujima and Tachibana Shijuro from Japan performing nihon buyo (Japanese classical dance).
