Arts @ Clarke – A Night in Japan event

October 13, 2017

The Edward J. and Cathy Gallagher Arts at Clarke series will host “A Night in Japan” on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in Jansen Music Hall. The event will feature Clarke ensembles, Tsukasa Taiko, and Japanese cuisine provided by Clarke Dining Services.

The event begins with Clarke University ensembles under the director of Andrew Alegria and David Resnick and concludes with Tsukasa Taiko. Tsukasa Taiko is a leading community arts program for Japanese drumming and performing arts, offering taiko drum instruction, education, and performances. According to their website, the Tsukasa Taiko mission is to preserve, develop, and pass on the traditional concepts of Japanese art as a cultural legacy, and to utilize these concepts in expanding and evolving the taiko art form.

Prior to the event, Clarke Dining Services will provide authentic Japanese cuisine. Food will be served 6:30-7:15 p.m. and an event ticket is required.

“This is the Arts at Clarke Series’ fourth cultural celebration event. We have highlighted India, Ireland, Spain, and now Japan. The Clarke ensembles have performed beautifully, the guest artists have been outstanding and the food, of course, is always delicious. Our goal is to provide the audience with an educational opportunity – to learn about the sights, sounds and tastes of a culture unlike our own. These events have been very well received by our Clarke community, as well as the greater Dubuque area. We are looking forward to another wonderful event in October,” said Megan Stull, Arts at Clarke committee member.

Tickets are $10 general admission and can be purchased at clarke.edu/anightinjapan or by phone at (563)588-6377.
