Chibi’s 20th Anniversary Concert

  • 7th December 2013

What a night! Over 500 friends, family and taiko fans gathered at the Vancouver Playhouse on November 30 to help us celebrate twenty years as Canada’s first youth taiko group. Joining us on stage were special friends Yoshikazu and Yoko Fujimoto and Seattle’s Inochi Taiko, making it a night to remember. Our new costumes looked great under the lights and everyone brought lots of energy and smiles to the stage. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and to everyone who helped out behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly.

Let us take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us over the past twenty years – former members, parents, friends, donors and fellow taiko players – the Chibi family is truly a special one!
