“I performed Jack Bazaar at the National Theater of Japan in 2013 as part of the first American ensemble to join the annual Nihon no Taiko concert. I dropped my bachi. Let me teach you how to do it better! If you get a chance, please take a look at the piece in advance… I love questions!” — Kris Bergstrom
