An Evening with Henri Benard – Making Junk Percussion and a Musical Masterpiece
Work with Dry River Yacht Club drummer Henri Benard in shaping all kinds of percussion instruments from found objects and outright junk. Develop a real feel for rhythm. The participants will put together a complete piece of music to perform. Join us for the best local dessert and coffee and an event that is part artist portrait, part history lesson, part community forum and part creative event. Open to the public; donations welcome.
This free series presents performances from the East Valley community and the many cultural groups within it. Included are children’s plays, kid and adult film series, classical music pulled out of the symphony halls and cultural and educational musical performances from groups representing Mariachi, Brazilian, Tempe Rock and World Beat music. Most shows start at 7 p.m. and are free.
