Following up on their recent successful Toowoomba Camellia Show Taiko performances, Toowoomba Taiko performed on Saturday morning to a small audience at St.James Anglican Church for their monthly fellowship breakfast. After advising the audience to turn their hearing aids down if they had them, four members (Tomoko, Michelle, Gary and Sian) played several pieces on the wonderful Takatsuki-donated Taikos to the delight of those assembled.
Their next gig will be during the day at the BBRD stand in the Toowoomba Languages and Cultural Festival next Sunday in Queen's Park.
As a result, we have been given permission to hold on to the drums until after next Sunday, so we will be doing our usual Thursday night training session, this week only, in the St James Parish Centre, 145 Mort St from 6-7.30pm. Please come along if you want to have a go on the real Taiko!
