Japanese drumming

 

Ho Etsu Taiko Drummers is a collective of musicians with a fresh take on the art of Japanese drumming. With their music they attempt to blend the deep-rooted culture of Japanese-American taiko with influences that inspire and celebrate the diversity of their performing members. Their mission is to spread joy through every drumbeat by creating music that is true to them. They push the envelope through collaborations with other taiko groups, musicians and culturally-focused performance artists while staying grounded in the rich tradition of the taiko ensemble. Taiko requires discipline of both mind and body. Beyond an emphasis on musicality, many hours are dedicated to training the aspects of movement and visual presence. The Fine Arts Series is an annual series that brings a variety of inspiring and diverse musical performances to campus each year. Individual tickets for the Illinois College Fine Arts Series are $15 each and season tickets are $60 each. Students of all ages receive free admission. Tickets are available in advance by calling 217-245-3046 or at the door.
