Percussion enthusiasts are invited this Friday evening to Texas A&M University-Commerce for the inaugural Drum Fun event. The event will begin at 5 p.m. in the TAMUC Amphitheater and is expected to last until about 7 p.m.
The TAMUC Percussion Association is hosting the evening of activities in an effort to bring the A&M-Commerce student body and area community together “through education, concerts and activities revolved around drutus and percussion.” Drum Fest isn’t your typical on-campus percussion concert, but a combination of ensemble performances, games and other interactive percussion activities for kids toddler age and up to adults, faculty, staff, students and families.
“This event will impact the entire university by providing an educational, unique, and fun perspective of percussion and drutus by allowing them to see what we do, up close and personal. All attendees will have a chance to see student ensembles perform, play instruments, and learn from the Percussion Association members,” Paige Fleming notes in a flyer drafted on behalf of the association and distributed locally. “This activity will both positively impact the university AND fulfill our organizations mission. Attendees can play all different types of percussion instruments in the Percussion Petting Zoo, be taught and play in an organized drum circle, and enjoy playing drum-themed carnival games. All of the booths and activity centers will be monitored, organized and taught by the Percussion Association members.”
The combined percussion ensemble performances will include Panimation Steel Band, Samba Leao Brazilian Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble II.
