Gabriel Globus-Hoenich (Timpani and Percussion '08)
Curtis musicians join performer and educator Gabriel Globus-Hoenich to take children through the world of percussion. This interactive exploration of rhythm is inspired by the children's book Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins, which tells the story of a band of monkeys that explore what hands can do. This performance will use percussion as a tool for communication, teamwork, creativity, leadership, and discipline.
The Curtis Institute of Music receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
