Message from Ho Etsu:

Like all other performing organizations we have temporarily suspended “in-person” events. But that does not mean we are inactive. We are using this time as productively as we can to plan, compose new material, stay deeply involved in the broader Taiko community and learning new skills in digital media. We hope to be back soon better than ever and if you have any question feel free to reach out to us at info@hoetsu.com. Please stay safe.
