East Coast Taiko Conference 2020

The East Coast Taiko Conference, which took place at the University of Connecticut, Storrs Campus from February 21 – 23rd, 2020 concluded and everyone who went had a great time! 

Special congratulations goes out to Chris who performed Omiyage as a representative of NYTAK with other performers from all around the country!  Koh and Columbia Taiko also had a wonderful performance, and Keiko-san performed as a member of Soh Daiko as well.  And last but not least, our very own Gen who won the How fast can you say it? contest this year, smashing all former records set at NATC 2019 and making him the WORLD CHAMPION of this challenge. Way to go, Gen!

Shirts are selling out fast! Our table at ECTC with Keiko and Jared who came and staffed our table. Thank you Jared!

Meanwhile back in NYC, a shot of our devoted members who wouldn't miss a week of Taiko practice!
