The World of Percussion presented by Young Audiences of Houston

The World of Percussion presented by Young Audiences of Houston In-Person

The World of Percussion is a multi-media presentation with live percussion performance, artist interaction, and digital presentation, designed for elementary schools to instill a love for music at an early age. In this program, Houston Symphony Principal Percussionist, Brian Del Signore, introduces participants to percussion instruments and rhythms in a geographical trip around the world. The program starts with an introduction to the symphony orchestra and the four instrument groups (strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion). The word “percussion” is then defined and Mr. Del Signore discusses and shows examples of finding percussion instruments in the world around us, providing demonstrations and inviting student to take part in a world music “jam session”. Recommended for ages 5 - 12 years. 

Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event. Please register every member in your group.
