Summer Series - Oto-Wa Taiko

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Due to the heat, our performance this week will take place in the Lower Lobby.

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series!

Oto-Wa Taiko has been bringing the dynamic sights and sounds of Japanese drumming (taiko) to public and private events and schools in Ottawa and surrounding areas since 1989. The group's name consists of two Japanese characters oto (sound) and wa (harmony). The character wa symbolizes the harmony of spirit among the players and with their taiko as they make joyous sound together. Oto-Wa Taiko also conducts general interest taiko workshops for anyone interested in experiencing taiko first-hand, and runs taiko training classes for potential new performers.

These free concerts will take place every Thursday in July and August. The performances will present a wonderfully diverse selection of local artists and performers.
