Wanted: Taiko Practice/Classroom/Rehearsal Space

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Hello all!
Taiko Center of the Pacific must vacate our 15-year home at Kapiolani Community College’s Chapel for 5-6 months starting in January. KCC will be renovating the chapel (new exterior paint, repairing the windows) – which will take 5-6 months! As such, TCP is looking for a new home (however temporary that might be) in order to continue teaching taiko to the community. If you have any leads, please give us a call or email us at:
(808) 737-7236

THANK YOU for any assistance you can provide!
