Wow! What a rush!

The taiko show Sunday afternoon/evening was great! We had every seat filled and some people standing. People seemed moved by the story of the first act and energized by the drumming in second act. By the final song, the audience was chanting along with the performers. Up there on stage, I felt so energize and played my part better than ever before. Yassa, Yassa, Yassa,Yassa, So-re so-re so-re.

There were many compliments on the quality of the drumming and performance, the quick transitions and smooth pace of the show (due to johno's skillful stage management). Oh, and they like the costumes too (yours truly was the costume designer, but I also had a talented and dedicated crew).

Today, I'm sore and exhausted, but still excited by the success.
