Drumming in the Park

From Friday, June 21, 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm

Join a drum celebration at Drumming in the Park, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 21, 2109, at McKinley Park, 2210 W. Pershing Road, Chicago.

Beyond This Point and GRAMMY-winning percussionist Matthew Duvall present this eclectic program featuring Steve Reich's "Drumming," a work inspired by the master drummers of Ghana.

In coordination with Make Music Chicago's Pianos in the Parks, the musicians activate pianos with ambient, meditative music, and invite audiences to add their own sounds on provided instruments as well as experiment with other hands-on installations. Each portion of the program creates a space for listening, inviting audiences of all ages to interact with park spaces in new ways.
