2nd Annual Asheville Percussion Festival

14 Jun 2013 - 16 Jun 2013

Join us for the second annual Asheville Percussion Festival on June 14th-16th, 2013 at the Odyssey Community School in Asheville, NC. The mission is to provide a creative environment where percussionists of all traditions, from around the globe, gather to explore, create and innovate. The festival will be hosted by Asheville’s beloved ambassador of rhythm River Guerguerian. There will be workshops Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Workshop topics for all levels will include performing, improvising, and composing taught by world-renowned performers such as Layne Redmond, Kevin Spears, Edwina Tyler, Billy Jonas, Casey Driessen, and other national and regional teachers.

The concerts will be held on Friday & Saturday evenings at 8pm. Saturday evening’s concert will be a ‘Master Concert’ featuring the visiting and local performers and teachers.
After the huge success of the First Annual Percussion Festival, this years event is gearing toward a very affordable way to experience profound learning, sonic diversity, along with building relationships constructed upon the foundation of the love and necessity of creating and exploring music, the tribal joy of percussion and the rhythmic force of our rising percussive community.
