We have limited spaces, so participants must sign up by Monday, October 1st (if you miss the deadline, email or call us to see if there is space left). Priority is given to school aged students, and this program is designed for ages 9 and up (mature younger students can still attend).

Want to participate?

The dates are October 3-4-5, and time/details are below. You will need to attend all three rehearsals to learn the piece for a performance on the last day. This class is free, but donations to help support it are suggested.

This engaging program will end with you performing in a concert along with Stuart Paton Sensei, students, and adults from across the Claremont and the surrounding communities. The class will be taught by Stuart Paton of Burlington Taiko, who many saw perform at the Claremont Farmers’ Market program. The performance will be in a field outside under a tent (it will be chilly, so warm clothing will be a necessity!). The evening of the performance there will be a final rehearsal. WCCMA will be hosting a dinner buffet and hot snacks and beverages for your convenience should you decide to eat on site before the performance. Buffet discounts for families will be available.
