Academy Of Music Ballroom
Clap your hands, stomp your feet, and feel the music of the percussion family! Percussion instruments are the oldest and largest instrument family. Mallet instruments, like the xylophone, glockenspiel, marimba, and vibraphone, as well as chimes, cymbals, the triangle, and of course drums, like the bass and snare come together to make up this unique family. Sound is produced on most percussion instruments by striking or shaking the instrument. Philadelphia Orchestra Principal Percussion Christopher Deviney will demonstrate all the instruments that can be hit, struck, slapped, and scraped.
The Sound All Around concert series is presented by PNC Grow Up Great and is endowed in perpetuity by the Garrison Family Fund for Children's Concerts.
