The beat is on at CSUS

Photo of Skin and Bones California State University, Sacramento hopes the rhythm is gonna get you at its 2nd Annual Day of Percussion, Saturday, Oct. 12. The event is from 10 a.m. until dusk at various locations at or near Capistrano Hall.

The music department's daylong multi-cultural event includes special guest artists Gamelan Sekar Jaya, "hand-drums/body percussionist" Jim Santi-Owen, Auburn Drumline and West Coast Impact. Featured events include Music and Dance of Bali and South Indian Percussion. The event will also include the CSUS Percussion Group, CSUS Drumline and developing music department students.

Vendors with drums and other percussion instruments will be on hand to demonstrate instruments and answer questions. A concert at 7:30 p.m. with several artists completes the day.

CSUS Percussion Studies Program director Dan Kennedy promises this is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday. "It's going to be a great event," Kennedy says. "It's very hands-on." He says there is also a free workshop for all ages beginning at 5:30 p.m. Bring your own favorite drum, Kennedy says.

Pre-registration admission is $20 if received by Friday, Oct. 4. Otherwise, admission on the day of the event is $25. The price includes lunch. The cost for the evening concert is only $8 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors.

For more information or advance tickets contact Dan Kennedy at (916) 278-7988. Media assistance is also available from the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
