After 15 years of creativity and collaboration, Tomoe Arts will be closing its doors in early 2024. To commemorate the diverse legacy of the society under Colleen's direction, our final program will bring together collaborators, students, and colleagues who have maintained ties with Tomoe Arts over the years for an afternoon of celebratory and reflective music and dance.

The program will be approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by a reception with light refreshments and cash bar.

We hope that you will join us as we commemorate the closing of Tomoe Arts.
