This is the first 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 concert will showcase the performances of several taiko pioneers, as well as many who are pushing taiko in new and innovative ways. We are honored to welcome them to ITI as our esteemed instructors at this 25th anniversary celebration.
