Block Party 2012

Hi Everyone!

This is Audrey Tu, the Performance Director of Senryu Taiko, here to talk about our participation at Block Party 3 weeks ago!

On Friday, October 2, Senryu Taiko had the honor of being the opening for the set of student organization performances on the stage by the Bell Tower that evening. In addition to our performance, Collective Faction and 909 Hip Hop performed on the big stage. With a small team of 6, we performed Nano Hana, Ichi Ji, and Mukashi Mukashi— Oh! In fact, that performance of Ichi Ji was the first for a few of our “newbies.” Congratulations! You guys have grown so much. Also, we’d like to thank everyone who watched and cheered for our performance. The energy of the crowd was great and encouraged us to give it our all!

In addition to performing, we also tabled for the event, along with many other student orgs. Since we set up early, we reserved a space that had a lot of foot traffic—Score! Thank you to everyone who visited our table! It was a great pleasure to talk to you all.

We hope to see you all again!…

Informational Meetings 2012

Hello, this is Jennifer!  On behalf of our members, I would like to thank everyone who made it out to our informational meetings on Monday and Wednesday!  We had a great time meeting potential members of our next generation: Generation 15!  Wow, what an exciting milestone!

We hope to see everyone next Monday, October 8, at the Barn Theatre (where we held the general meetings) for our first official practice of the school year!  We’ll have practices every Monday and Wednesday, from 6:30PM-9PM.  Feel free to come earlier, around 5PM, if you want some extra practice.  Remember, there are also optional extra practices on Fridays and Sundays starting at 5PM.  Don’t worry if you have class conflicts, but please let us know beforehand.

Another thing I would like to note is that the acceptance into our group is not solely based on one’s audition.  We realized only afterwards that we forgot to mention this crucial fact; there are many other factors based on the directors’ decisions, so please keep that in mind.  Of course, this doesn’t mean that the audition should be taken lightly, but we do not want to discourage anyone from trying out.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or message on our facebook fan page or email us at senryutaiko@gmail.com.…
