Drums

I had the opportunity to see the Chicago Percussion Quintet perform live last year.  They were fantastic!  They used instruments from all over the world.  Some of them included marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, bells, steel drum, congas, bongos, shakers, drum set, and gongs.

On April 27, 2013, as part of the library’s El dia de los niños/El dia de los libros event, the Chicago Percussion Quintet will be bringing us a multicultural performance with over thirty instruments from Africa, Brazil, China, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Spain, and the United States.  Come from 2:00 PM – 2:45 PM for the show!  All ages are invited (preschoolers must be with an adult).

See you there!
