Get in the rhythm at this year’s Art of Percussion family workshop! The event is a collaboration between Quad City Botanical Center, River Music Experience and the Figge Art Museum. The fun starts at the Figge with live music followed by studio time for creating imaginative musical instruments from gourds and recycled materials. We’ll break for lunch (bring a sack lunch) then meet back in the Figge lobby with your instruments. Terry Hanson will lead everyone to RME for a lively percussion circle. Award winning singer-songwriter Amy Lowe will join the group performing songs with the drum circle along with giving a performce herself on the RME Community Stage.
