NOITP 3: Nichols Park

Since 2015, Tsukasa Taiko has been an active participant of the Chicago Park District’s annual Night Out in the Parks program. Our ensemble members have performed at over 20 different Chicago parks throughout the years, presenting an average 2hr performance each night. Our Night Out in the Parks performances are specifically curated to be equally entertaining and informative, blending elements of traditional Japanese music, dance, and interactive demonstrations that encourage audience engagement. Always free and open to the public, Tsukasa Taiko has been excited to perform all over the city for various local communities, serving as a Chicago summer staple act.

Nichols Park in the heart of downtown Hyde Park is a familiar site for us from the 4th on 53rd Parade, and we were happy to feature our sister taiko group GenRyu Arts from San Francisco at this performance.
