BPA will present an array of nationally and internationally-renowned artists for school and community outreach performances throughout each season. This March, the series will welcome One World Taiko, a contemporary Japanese drum ensemble that features spirited drumming and a blend of traditional, contemporary, and world music stylings. One World Taiko performed full time at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center's Japan Pavilion in Orlando, Florida for four years. They have also performed in Japan, Europe, the Middle East, and all over the US at numerous concerts, festivals, celebrations, corporate events, schools, and colleges. Visit One World Taiko online at www.oneworldtaiko.com.
BPA's 2012 - 2013 Cultural Outreach Series featured Native American Flute and Storytelling in November and the Anzanga African Marimba Ensemble in January, and we hope to offer a fourth engagement, pending audience feedback. The public is invited to contact Operations Manager Shannon Dowling at 206.842.4560 or email@example.com with suggestions about the type of performance they would like to see on April 18. Each cultural outreach offering includes an evening performance for the general public, plus one or two student matinees on the given date, depending on interest and demand. School outreach arrangements may be made on a first-come, first-served basis with Shannon Dowling via phone or email.
One World Taiko offers a special evening performance, one night only at BPA on Thursday, March 28 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets, $12 for adults, and $8 for seniors, students, youth, military, and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island.
