I am very proud to announce that the Club is to be the recipient of a substantial donation of taiko drums, gifted from the Takatsuki City to the City of Toowoomba. As the home of Toowoomba Taiko, BBRD will be storing and facilitating the use of this gift, which when shipping and travel of Taiko sensei are factored in amounts to close to $20,000.
It is an honour to be involved in this inter-community donation. Sian Carlyon will be in Takatsuki this week on the back of participating in a Wadaiko Festival and a personal holiday to officially thank the Takatsuki community for their gift.
The official welcoming ceremony in Toowoomba will be held Wednesday next week (7 March), and there will be a taiko workshop run in conjunction with the visit from the Takatsuki Taiko delegation.
We will be posting updates through this week. Stay tuned!
