Artists Up Close
To increase appreciation of Taiko Legacy 5, the MCA has organized these intimate opportunities for audience members to engage with the artists.

MCA Family Day feature
On the afternoon of Saturday, December 13, three generations of Tsukasa Taiko at JASC ranging in ages from 9 to 24 performed from their taiko repertoire and led a hands-on demonstration for museum visitors young and old.

First night post show talk, Saturday, December 13
Audience members are invited to join Peter Taub, Director of Performance Programs, in a conversation with the artists immediately following the performance.

Waitlist Procedure
MCA Box office will begin a waitlist one hour before the program begins. At that time, numbers are given out to patrons on a first-come, first-served basis, one number per patron per ticket. As tickets become available, box office staff will call out waitlist numbers in the order they are given out. Patrons must be present to take a number. As staff cannot predict when or if tickets will become available, it is important for those on the waitlist to remain within hearing distance. If a number is called and no one responds, box office staff will dismiss the number called and call the next number. Cash is preferred for waitlist transactions. Thank you for your cooperation and interest in this event. MCA Box Office, 312.397.4010
