May 10, 2018

Completion of Tour:
TAO: Drum Heart 2018

Fresh off a 73 performance coast-to-coast tour, internationally-acclaimed percussion artists Drum TAO are already looking ahead to their 2020 tour! Read what presenters had to say about the awe-inspiring shows:



 

 "TAO: Drum Heart was absolutely fantastic.  The show featured traditional drumming mixed with contemporary movement and humor.  The design of the show was well planned and featured super high energy drumming followed by soft, quiet singular rhythms.  The beautiful costumes and set design really gave it that extra edge. Our audience gave them a standing ovation at both intermission and the end of the show!"
 

- Emily Hefley, Programming Manager

 Germantown Performing Arts Center, Germantown, TN

 


 

Well that show was a lively hit! The audiences love it!!

TAO: Drum Heart was a complete delight. Our audience was blown away by their athleticism, precision and high level of talent, plus a pinch of humor!
 

- Emily Behrmann – General Manager

Johnson County Community College, Overland Park, KS



 

Our nearly sold-out audience had little idea what to expect before the show. They walked away thoroughly amazed by how effortlessly TAO combined sheer athleticism with brilliant artistry.

"TAO was fabulous! Just a terrific show…according to everyone in the audience I talked to, it was TAO’s best yet.
 

- Greg Talford - President/CEO

Boerne Performing Arts Center, Boerne, TX
 


 

"We were delighted to have TAO with us once again at The Smith Center! Their amazing talent and athleticism was truly appreciated by our nearly sold out audience.
 

- Glenn Medas

The performance last month of TAO: Drum Heart was indeed a spectacular show. This amazing company continues to expand the art form of drumming while creating diverse, powerful and exciting programs every time they return. As an Arts Presenter who has been in this business for 35 years, I know that variety is what keeps people coming back and I try not to bring companies back too quickly even when they are great shows. Well, that went out the window with Drum Heart and after the curtain came down and the full house finished their five minute standing ovation, I went right to my office to book them for their next US tour.
 

In a world of many shows and indeed many drum shows, TAO stands out in a class all their own. During my tenure, I have had the pleasure of bringing all of the major drum companies to my venue, but from here on forward, it will be nothing but TAO --- they are truly a first rate, extraordinary troupe who knows how to entertain an audience and keep them coming back for more!
 

Looking forward to presenting them again in 2019-20.
 

- Alan Inkles, Director

Staller Center for the Arts, Stony Brook, NY
