Learn the Art of Percussion with TorQ

by on October 19, 2010


The Fredericton Playhouse is pleased to offer a series of innovative workshops and enrichment activities that take place in conjunction with our Spotlight Series performances. As part of our Create, Learn & Play Series, aspiring percussionists and music-lovers alike will have the chance to learn from the creative energy of Toronto-based percussion quartet TorQ.

Join the members of TorQ as they take a hands-on approach to discuss musical concepts of ensemble listening, playing without a conductor, musical expression and phrasing, and improvisation. Concepts are openly discussed with the participants and then short activities are used to exercise the discussion.

This introductory level workshop takes place at The Fredericton Playhouse on Monday, November 1 at 6:30pm, and is open to ages 12 and up.  The workshop fee is $20 ($10 for Spotlight members) and registration is required by calling the box office at 458-8344. Instruments will be provided, although participants are welcome to bring their own percussive instruments if they wish.

For more information on this event please contact Amani Wassef at (506) 459-6212 or
