Shaping the Future Entry Form


Friday night’s performance of TAO: DRUM HEART has been moved to the Emporia Granada Theatre at 807 Commercial St.

All those attending the performance are encouraged to start arriving by 6:30 for the 7:00 show.

Citing technical challenges at Albert Taylor Hall, TAO: DRUM HEART required the change of venue.
