The sounds of Percussion October 6th

September 24, 2018

Are you ready to make music!


It’s not just the first concert of our 37th season, it’s very first time we are offering a hands-on workshop for budding percussionists to come play with the renowned Greg Giannascoli, marimba player extraordinaire, and learn from him the basics of percussion playing!  We call it Percussion in Plainfield and we invite you to come to both parts, the workshop at 2:00pm followed by a full concert at 5:00pm.   We’ll have a refreshing break in between for both participants and audience, and then be dazzled by Greg and his superb skills on the marimba!


Here’s how it works:  the workshop is open to those 15 years and up (if you’d like to try it, there’s no upper age limit!) by application and the price of one concert ticket, and of course we are encouraging young people from the Plainfield area to get involved, but all are welcome to apply.  Greg will supply the percussion instruments of several kinds and explain how they work, give basic rhythm instruction and create a drum circle so everyone can play together.  No experience is required but if you have some, that’s great!  And then after the refreshment break, Greg and will perform works by Gershwin, Bernstein, Liszt, Kreisler and a few others he is keeping as a surprise!


It would be wonderful to see you again, and please alert your family and friends to this unique experience – you won’t be sorry!  And you might want to consider becoming a subscriber, especially for this season of unique concerts and first-time collaborations.  You will surely enjoy this musical adventure!
