Meet the Percussionist
October 15, 2018 | 6:00PM
The Bridges Golf Club at 9000 S Gale Ridge Road in San Ramon
We invite you to learn why percussion is about so much more than just keeping the beat. Whether setting the frenetic rhythms of a West Side Story fight scene, or playing a single, epic cymbal crash in Bruckner's 7th Symphony, the percussionist plays a crucial and varied role in a modern orchestra. Tickets include:
- Hosted wine, drinks and heavy hors d'oeuvres.
- A demonstration of exciting percussion instruments, including how Allen originated the sound of the witch melting in the Broadway musical Wicked.
- Hear Donato interview Allen, who grew up playing in Rock and Roll bands in San Francisco and whose passion for percussion has taken him around the world.
