Description: If your kids have been using your expensive pots and pans as stand ins for that drum set they've been dreaming about, they'll get a real kick out of the new monthly series at the Player's Theatre.
Young musicians will have the opportunity to make their own percussion instrument before the performance, with help from the members of Percussion People, of course. And kids will be everywhere, including the stage: the group includes thirteen-year-old Emily Sgouros.
Children will recognize some of the more familiar instruments, like bongos and triangles, and will also be introduced to marimbas, Italian tambourines, djembe drums and more as Percussion People explore the history of percussion and its role in various cultures, all with dynamic demonstration. And at the end of the show your child can take home his instrument, which means your pots and pans can actually be used for cooking once again.
All performances are Sundays at 11am. Instrument building workshop at 10:30am.
