The Franklin Performing Arts Company Family Concert Series presents
The New England Percussion Ensemble specializes in presenting creative and energetic audience-interactive enrichment programs to youngsters.
They will be presenting "LANGUAGE OF THE ANCIENTS" --
Audience members travel a journey through time which conjures the image of early mankind using stones, sticks, rattles and hollow logs to accompany singing and body movement. A leap in time occurs when we use "found" instruments of today – plastic tubes of different lengths, trash bags snapped in the air, newspapers torn in time to foot stomping accompaniment. Our exploration of this truly ancient language travels from the familiar to the unfamiliar with imagination, inventiveness and creativity – new sights, new sounds; some loud and spirit shaking, some soft and haunting. (With performance piece titles such as “Take Out the Garbage” and "The Elephants Are Coming" how can you lose???) Student hands-on ensemble concludes.
The Franklin Performing Arts Company Family Concert Series is free and open to the public.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Franklin Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
