This year, Portland Taiko will hold its BONENKAI (year-end party, recital, and fundraiser) online. We will present the unedited taiko videos from our fall concert as well as new taiko videos from our students in the Power Taiko and Beyond Basics classes. In addition to short greetings and announcements, we will pay tribute to our beloved friend and co-founder Valerie Otani with a special video and a new musical work-in-progress. This has been a difficult year for all of us, so we are anxious to say “good-bye” to 2020 and welcome in the new year with hopes for a better future. With that in mind, grab your favorite drink and join us on Friday, December 4, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
