NOTE: We’ve just added a few photos from our 2018 Summer performance at Anderson Gardens.
Each year we play two events at the beautiful Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois. If you’ve never visited the gardens, it’s worth the drive to Rockford to find a stunning example of a Japanese garden right here in the Midwest.
In spring we participate at the garden’s Opening Ceremony, an all-day affair with food, entertainment, and tours. In the summer, we play the weekend-long Summer Festival. Artisans and entertainers fly in from Japan for this event to contribute to the festivities.
