The festival opens with — and repeats as an encore closing event — a concert on the Guthrie’s McGuire Proscenium stage featuring Mu Daiko and spotlighting guest artists. The concert celebrates two decades of Mu Daiko with an all-star guest list, featuring a playlist of Mu Daiko favorites, new compositions, and a commission by Michelle Fuji.
Concert dates and time: April 28 and 29, 7 p.m. each night.
