In May, Chibi Taiko played continuously for about four hours at Lumberman’s Arch for the Vancouver International Marathon. They won second prize in the Music Challenge. Runners pumped their fists in the air when they passed by and some stopped to take photos with Chibi members.
In the early spring 2012, Chibi juniors participated in a special workshop with Art Lee from Tokara Taiko based in Nagano Japan. The juniors enjoyed the challenge of learning a new style and piece.
