The following is a press release from the Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee.
SEATTLE, WA — The Minidoka Pilgrimage Planning Committee and Seattle University are proud to present the Day of Remembrance 2015 Taiko Concert on Sunday, February 15, 2015.
The Taiko Concert will feature performances by several renowned taiko groups from the Seattle area. Taiko refers to a traditional Japanese form of percussion using large, barrel-shaped drums, dynamic playing styles, and choreographed movements. It is widely popular in Japanese American communities throughout the United States, and increasingly with youth groups.
A free exhibit in the Paccar Atrium, located directly outside the auditorium, will include displays about the Minidoka Pilgrimage, Seattle University, National Park Service and the Minidoka National Historic Site, and the Seattle Nisei Veterans Committee/NVC Foundation. Raffle ticket sales and a general store will also be in the atrium to help support the work of the Minidoka Pilgrimage.
