The Youth and Adult taiko groups were honoured to perform at the Calgary Foundation's Vital City event. We took a few of our favourite pieces and sewed excerpts of them together to create a seamless short taiko package as the opening of the event.
"The Foundation facilitates collaborative philanthropy by making powerful connections between donors and community organizations for the long-term benefit of Calgary and area. In 2017-18, Calgary Foundation saw $34.0 million in new contributions, had an asset base of $975.3 million and granted $45.2 million to 919 charitable organizations.
It is the strategic partnerships with our generous fundholders and effective nonprofits that enable us to do great work and build a vibrant community. The strength and value of a community foundation is reflected in a strong and sustainable charitable sector."
This was the group's second time performing at this venue, and we had a really great time together. The time onstage was very short, but we made the most of it and enjoyed ourselves!
