PLEASE NOTE: This morning's Taikoza performances will be moved indoors to the Music Center lobby due to rain. Capacity is limited indoors, so please plan to arrive early if you do not have tickets and had planned to purchase them at the door. The 9:30AM performance will have more additional tickets for those who have not bought them yet, the 11:30AM performance will have very few additional tickets. Patrons without tickets will be admitted based on lobby capacity.
Please bring blankets to sit on in the lobby, no lawn chairs or large coolers are allowed. There is minimal bench seating in the lobby which is reserved for seniors and other patrons in need of a seat.
Taikoza never fails to get kids (and parents) on their feet with a lively glimpse into the music and culture of Japan, with ancestral Taiko drums, bamboo flutes and dancers in colorful traditional costumes.
This concert will run approximately 45 minutes with no intermission.
