Q. What is LATI DONference?
A. LATI DONference is a taiko event that Asano Taiko U.S. & LATI started hosting in December of 2021 with the concept of gathering taiko players not just from LATI but from all over the world through joint workshops, rehearsals, a Recital, Concert, and parties!
Q. I'm already set on coming! How do I register?
A. Official Registration Form will open on 10/10 (Tue).
Q. How do I purchase performance tickets?
A1. Recital Tickets: https://torrancearts.org/show/art-study-of-taiko-recital/
A2. Concert Tickets: https://torrancearts.org/show/art-study-of-taiko-concert/
Q. What is the difference between the Recital and the Concert?
A. The Recital is for students performing what they learned throughout our Sep-Nov classes. The Concert is for taiko groups that exist separately from these courses.
Q. Do I have to pay double the participation fee if I'm performing in both, Recital and Concert?
A. No, regardless of whether you are in one or both performances, the participation fee is $10 altogether.
Q. Will the studio be open for personal practice during the Events?
Q. Are there online 12-week courses offered this year?
A. We're very sorry, but there are no online courses offered this year. The only method to participate/perform at our Recital on 12/9 (Sat) is to learn a piece at our Workshops.
Q. Can I just come and take the Workshops in December?
A. Yes! Please register when the Registration Form is live on 10/10 (Tue). Deadline to register is 11/15 (Wed)! For workshop details, please see the Workshops page. Performing at our Recital on 12/9 (Sat) is an option (if so, please note there is a $10 Recital participation fee), but is not a requirement :)
Q. What if I can partially attend a workshop (i.e. one of the two days)?
A. There are two workshop options: 12/4 (Mon) AND 12/5 (Tue) Modori WS and 12/6 (Wed) AND 12/7 (Thu) Summer Reprise WS. You may take one or both workshops, but unfortunately we will not be offering a single-day registration option.
