Local Classical Featured Playlist – 10/31/22 – 11/13/22
This week we highlight the Rhythm! Discovery Center here in Indianapolis with the help of guest curator, Rob Funkhouser! The Rhythm! Discovery Center is the world’s only interactive drum and percussion museum. Founded in 2009, it is a creative vision of the Percussive Arts Society, the largest member-based international percussion organization in the world. Rhythm! features unique, interactive exhibits highlighting a rich collection of historic artifacts and hands-on percussion instruments and serves as the definitive place where the history of percussion is preserved, celebrated, and shared. Dynamic exhibits feature instruments from leading percussionists and promote the understanding of percussion and its role in world cultures through interactive educational experiences.
Rob Funkhouser is a composer, performer, instrument builder, and Operations and Education Manager at the Rhythm! Discovery Center. He’ll guide us through all the great things happening within the museum in this playlist. Specifically, the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) is coming up fast! Join PAS November 9 – 12, 2022 at the Indianapolis Convention Center for one of the largest drum and percussion events in the world. Featuring concerts, clinics, panels, and presentations given by the finest artists from all over the world, PASIC 2022 will showcase all areas of percussion – drum set, marching, keyboard, symphonic, world, recreational, education, music technology, new music, and health & wellness.
