As our annual Taiko Legacy performance draws nearer, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all of our funders and supporters who help Tsukasa Taiko maintain our legacy.
We are a program of Asian Improv aRts Midwest and the Japanese American Service Committee, and we would like to thank them as well the organizations who sponsor part of our artistic endeavors: Corbett, Duncan & Hubly, PC, the Illinois Arts Council, the MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture, the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, the Alphawood Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, and the National Endowments for the Arts. And don’t forget, our annual Taiko Legacy show is hosted by the Edlis Neeson Theater at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
We treasure our direct lineage and connection to the Japanese traditional arts, culture and language, while promoting a more refined aesthetic as an art organization rather than just a taiko group. Under AIRMW, we also work with Fujima Ryu of Chicago, and Toyoaki Shamisen, and our collaboration with Gen Ryu Arts in San Francisco has allowed us to expand our performing group Gintenkai, as a national unit. We would not be where we are today without all of the support and encouragement from art community, the art organizations, foundations, participants, parents, family, friends, and audience members. Thank you all so much.
