They've got the beat at CSUS

This fall California State University, Sacramento has rhythm. The CSUS music department will host the first "Day of Percussion" from 10 a.m. until dusk, Saturday, Oct. 13 in and around Capistrano Hall.

The day will include workshops, a drum circle, concerts, lunch and more.

Featured performers will be the distinguished hand drummer John Bergamo, the celebrated Hands On-semble, legendary drum-set artist Steve Smith, Bay Area "body-percussionist" Keith Terry and Congolese drumming specialist Bob Scarlet.

Also in the spotlight will be the Auburn Drumline, as well as the CSUS Drumline, Percussion Group, Marimba Quartet and student soloists.

Throughout the day these guest artists will offer demonstrations and workshops in their area of expertise. Local vendors will have a variety of percussion instruments on display and prizes of percussion accessories will be awarded.

The day will conclude with a showcase concert celebrating the art of percussion playing and featuring an ensemble of artists at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall.

Admission to all events is $20 if pre-registration is received by Friday, Sept. 28 and $25 the day of the event. The admission fee includes lunch and a "Day of Percussion" T-shirt. For the evening concert only, admission is $8 general and $5 for students and seniors. For those who will only be attending the drum circle at 5:30 p.m., it's free.
