Professional drummer Noel Brennan will lead a drum circle on Sunday, August 20, 6-7 pm, at Eastport Arts Center. Beginning to advanced drummers will experience the joy of language-based drumming in a group format. Material will include drum compositions from Senegal and India, as well as grooves from the west/USA. Brennan will share some of what he has learned during his educational travels in India and Los Angeles, and from his experiences as a drummer in New York City.
The session is for ages 14 and up, with a $10 fee per participant. A sliding fee scale (pay what you can) is available by request. Djembes will be provided, so space is limited. To register, please email Nicole at email@example.com. If you have your own djembe, please let the Center know when you register so that more students can participate.
