This is the second concert of a two-part concert series hosted by Stanford Taiko, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Intercollegiate Taiko Invitational (ITI). First established in 1995, ITI has grown into an annual two-day conference that brings together over 180 collegiate taiko players, who will have the opportunity to learn from and play with professional players on the vanguard of North American taiko. This second concert will be a showcase of the many collegiate groups attending ITI. As each collegiate group brings to ITI a different approach to taiko, all performing groups will be bringing one piece that they feel embodies their group’s signature, each offering a unique perspective. A joint finalé will feature players from several of the groups in collaboration.
Featured performers: CalArts Hinotani Daiko, University of Oregon Ahiru Daiko, Cal Poly Pomona Touzan Taiko, UC Berkeley Cal Raijin Taiko, Cal State Northridge Jishin Taiko, UC San Diego Asayake Taiko, UC Davis Bakuhatsu Taiko Dan, UC Riverside Senryu Taiko, UCLA Yukai Daiko, UCLA Kyodo Taiko, UCI Jodaiko, and Stanford Taiko.
