Regional Taiko Groups-Seattle (RTG-Seattle - our consortium of ten performing groups in the Seattle area) are happy to invite taiko players from throughout our region to RTG 2018, on Saturday-Sunday, August 11-12 at Shoercrest High School in Shoreline, WA (10 miles north of Seattle). Inochi Taiko's 15th Anniversary Concert will take place at Shorewood Performing Arts Center a few miles away, also in Shoreline, WA on the evening of Saturday, August 11. 

We held our first Regional Taiko Gathering in 1998 with about ten groups from Seattle, Vancouver and Portland and have steadily expanded over the years. We now invite groups and players from Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington to enjoy our Early Bird Registration from June 1 - June 15, 2018. 

Early Bird registration will save you money AND will give you a preference on workshop assignments. TCA members will also qualify for a further $10 discount! 

Starting on June 16 through July 28, 2018, Regular Registration (at regular prices) will be opened to all taiko players from any state, province or country.
