Tsukasa Taiko completed 5 performances and an early morning TV spot shoot throughout the first weekend of August 2019 at Morton Arboretum’s 6th Annual Destination Asia Festival. We were excited to be featured on ABC 7’z Roz Varon’s Weekender Report on Friday morning followed by an opening night performance. We then returned for 2 shows each day for both Saturday and Sunday. Destination Asia Festival also marked the beginning of a series of performances we completed with our guests from San Francisco, our sister dojo GenRyu Arts. 10 members joined us this year including younger Taiko III class students who were visiting the Windy City for the first time. Some of the members came straight to performance after their red-eye flight! We were so happy to complete another festival with great success.
