A lantern festival is a beautiful way to remember loved ones. Lanterns are inscribed, then lit and set afloat. They are sent off in hopes that the messages will reach friends and family. Odaiko New England is honored to return to Andover’s third Family Lantern Festival at the Chapel at West Parish.
Come bring a picnic dinner and be a part of the celebration.
The festival runs from 7-9pm. Donation of $10 per lantern.
Have you seen taiko performed and thought “I want to do that!” Do you like booming drums, using your body and having fun? Do you enjoy rhythm, movement and teamwork? Odaiko New England is offering an introductory taiko workshop which is the perfect opportunity to try your hand at taiko. Our workshops are great for beginner players, even those with no musical background at all.
New drummers learn taiko fundamentals such as kata (form), kiai (vocalization) and kumidaiko (ensemble drumming). Using your entire body to learn and play a song, explore first-hand the mesmerizing, heart-pounding power of taiko. Come ready to move: wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Ear plugs are also highly recommended.
No experience is necessary! Returning students are welcome to attend. ONE brings enthusiastic and encouraging instructors and all necessary drums and equipment. Participants bring plenty of energy, spirit, and joy!
