Event Description:

Whacky sounds, vocal games, mouth and body percussion, spoken chorus, improvisations, and more. This family-friendly performance will feature imaginative music-making from near and far. Hear distinctive choral sounds, original material by chorus members and the premier of a new work for boomwhackers by local percussionist and ethnomusicologist Dr. Sally Childs-Helton. Boomwhackers are tuned, colorful plastic tubes that are played by—you guessed it—whacking something. Artists-in-residence at the Eiteljorg Museum will also share Inuit music and culture, including a unique form of throat-singing, a vocal game traditionally used by women to pass the long winter nights.
