Weekend Highlights: Taiko Events Coming to Vegas, June 2015

North American Taiko Conference 2015

On Saturday, I attended a volunteer event at UNLV in preparation for the 2015 North American Taiko Conference in Las Vegas from June 11-14. I learned a lot. Here is what you need to know if you want to get a taste of taiko without attending the workshops.

Taiko Ten

Ten taiko groups will perform for 10 minutes each on Friday night from 7:30- 10:00. This event is free and open to the public. Get to UNLV’s Student Union Courtyard early to snag a great seat. It is outside so dress for the weather and bring a sporty seat cushion.

Taiko Jam Las Vegas!

World class taiko performing groups will be making it thunder in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 13 at 8:00 p.m. in UNLV’s Artemus Ham Hall. You need tickets for this event! Get them for $30 online or by calling 702-895-ARTS (2787).
