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 explores 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.
Percussion People continues its 2012 season at the Players Theatre taking you through their unique collection of percussion instruments. These include tuned percussion such as marimba, vibraphone, orchestra bells and tympani; non-tuned percussion such as drumset, bass drum, snare drum and cymbals; plus an array of ethnic percussion such as djembe, bongos, afuche and many more.
You'll have a chance to build your own percussion instrument to use during the show prior to the performance in a special Instrument Building Workshop. You'll also have a chance to try some of the instruments used during the show at the end of the performance. Featured on the CBS Early Morning Show and as a weekend pick by Time Out New York Kids, Percussion People is a perfect opportunity for young audiences to learn and experience live music.
*Your ticket includes an Instrument building workshop at 10:30am.
Tickets may be picked up 1 hour prior to the pre-show. We have a half-hour pre-show workshop where children can build their own instruments. The workshop is included in the
ticket price of every show. The show is appropriate for all ages, but recommended for ages 4 and up.
