Tickets on Sale for The Art of The Drum on March 1 at SWOSU
February 2, 2012
TAO: The Art of the Drum will appear as part of the SWOSU Panorama series on Thursday, March 1, on the Weatherford campus.
Tickets are now on sale for the event that will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus.
In this new production from Columbia Artists in New York City, athletic bodies and contemporary costumes meet explosive Taiko drumming and innovative choreography in a show that has extraordinary precision, energy and stamina. With hundreds of sold-out shows and more than a million spectators, TAO has proven that modern entertainment based on the traditional art of Japanese drumming has massive international appeal.
The stars of TAO live and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan, reaching the highest level of virtuosity only . . . after years of intensive study. They offer a young and vibrantly modern take on a traditional art form.
Advance tickets are $5 for SWOSU students with a valid SWOSU I.D. and $10 for all others. All tickets at the door will be $20. Advance tickets can be purchased with a credit card by calling (580) 774-3019 or in person at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office in Room 205 of the Administration Building; SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building; SWOSU Business Office on the Sayre campus; and the Weatherford Daily News.
