Elmore Lawson - Concert at the Rocks

Village Green
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 - 1:00pm

Concerts at the Rocks wouldn’t be the same without Elmore Lawson and his drum circle program. He has been with us since the beginning. He returns June 28 to introduce people of all ages to a variety of world percussion instruments and to lead a simple drum circle that includes rhythms, chants, call and response, and solo phrases.

Participants can try playing different drums and percussion instruments while learning how to work as a group and listen to one another in a non-judgemental way. He uses a playful, expressive and energetic environment to collaborate to create music as a community.

Elmore incorporates songs from African, South American, Asian, and Native American cultures and leads participants in traditional chants and rhythms from the different cultures.

Audiences are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs for the concerts.

Rain location: Library Community Room.
