Sounds of Japan

Columbia Chorale officially opens its 40th season with Sounds of Japan, a Japanese-themed concert featuring special guests the Osuwa Taiko Drumming Ensemble from St. Louis. The taiko’s deep, thunderous sound was traditionally used to communicate among neighboring villages and to intimidate enemies in warfare but is now a celebrated artform worldwide. This concert at the Missouri Theatre uniquely blends Eastern and Western music and rhythm to depict a universal musical language that transcends borders and cultures.
