I’ve seen the Taiko group from Fresno State and the Betsuin Temple, both are wonderful. But I want to know how we score with an out of town group.

I would love to give my 15 yr old son this unique chance to see Taikoproject. He is a student athlete at Central East High School and this year has broadened his horizons by joining a dance group (that will be performing this Saturday) and choir. This would be a great cultural treat.
