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.
