Celebrate your inner drummer

Here's your chance to release your inner drummer.

Everyone is invited to attend the Third Annual Day of Percussion on Saturday, Apr. 10 in the University Recital Hall hosted by the U of L Conservatory of Music. The day begins at 9:30 a.m. with $10 registration at the door.

"The day features clinics and performances from world drum educators and performers," says Adam Mason, Percussion Ensemble director. "Everybody in the community is welcome to attend."

Door prizes, giveaways and a showroom of percussion equipment greet attendees. The day is filled with workshops and some hands-on opportunities as well.

"Mike Michalkow, one of our special guests, is conducting a drum set clinic," says Mason. "Michalkow comes to us from Vancouver courtesy of Yamaha. It's a great opportunity for students to meet and work with an exceptional musician."

Another highlight is the Marching Percussion Clinic, led by Lael Johnston.

"Participants are going to experience one of the best drum lines of our region," says Mason.

Tickets for the Global Drums concert are separate from Day of Percussion registration and are available for $15 regular admission and $10 for students and seniors.
