The post says it all. Congrats to the select few people who became the newly performing members and the future of Jishin Taiko! We at Jishin Taiko are extremely proud of all of you! For those of you that auditioned and didn't make the cut, don't worry. There are plenty of opportunities in the future that you can showcase your skills in hopes of becoming a performing member for Jishin Taiko. Have faith, work hard, stay strong, stay positive, and never give up! You will eventually get there someday!

We would like to thank The Claremont Colleges Psyko Taiko and Touzan Taiko for a great joint practice this past Saturday. We had so much fun making great music and getting to know all of you! We hope to see you all again very soon!

So far this school year, we've held a few fundraisers in hopes of reaching our financial goals that will help us host the Intercollegiate Taiko Conference this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend right here at CSUN! For instance, we've sold many CDs back in November 2013 as well as a whole sleuth of tacos back in October 2013. In addition, we're asking local businesses all over the Northridge area to help support and sponsor us by contributing/giving us their various financial amounts that will help us reach our financial goals and make hosting the ITC at CSUN become a reality. Even though we're making progress, we appreciate all of your contributions. And with that, we say thank you! We greatly appreciated it!
So Many General Members Of CSUN Jishin Taiko Auditioned In Hopes To Become Performing Members of CSUN Jishin Taiko!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This past Friday, Valentine's Day 2014, and Monday, February 17, 2014, a small group of general members of this awesome group, about 9 people in total, have auditioned in hopes of becoming a performing member of this awesome group! We just want to say good luck to all of the general members who are auditioning to become performing members! Break a leg! You know who you are! We are so very proud of you!
On Sunday, November 10, 2013, CSUN Jishin Taiko performed the song Studio Matsuri at the CSUN VSA's Northridge By Night Talent Show. The video footage of this performance is in the videos section of this blog so go check it out! There, skip to 3:10 of the video if you just want to see the introduction of the group and the performance itself, not the college roll call/shoutout. Enjoy!
On Friday, February 7, 2014, it was our New Member Orientation for the Spring 2014 Semester! It happened at Cypress Hall, home of the CSUN Music Department, in Room 145 from 7:00-9:00 PM. That event was absolutely FREE! Free refreshments, free performances, free workshop, FREE EVERYTHING!!!!! And just like last semester's New Member Orientation that we hosted, we've seen a small group of fresh faces who are willing to learn about the background history of this awesome group and taiko in general as well as learning how to play the taiko for the very first time! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the Spring 2014 New Member Orientation that happened on that day! We hope that you had so much fun hanging out with the members as well as seeing some performances and hitting the taiko for the first time! It was a great turnout to the event and we gladly appreciated it!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to get to know us and our club at the CSUN Meet the Clubs Days! We greatly appreciated it. We have gotten so many signatures from people who are really interested in learning more about our club! We're looking forward to recruiting more new members in the upcoming future semesters here at CSUN!
This coming Saturday, February 22, 2014, we are having a joint practice with two awesome collegiate taiko groups, Cal Poly Ponoma's Touzan Taiko and The Claremont Colleges Psyko Taiko, at Cal Poly Ponoma from 3:00-6:00 PM. We can't wait to meet, greet, and get to know all of you! See you there!
On Saturday, February 15, 2014, the performing members of this awesome group performed 3 songs, KoreKara, Matsuri, and Omiyage at the 2014 Los Angeles Tet Festival in El Monte, CA. Don't believe it? Then go to the video section of this blog to see the video clips from each of the three performances. We hope you enjoy these awesome vids!
