Roots of Rhythm

Join us for two days of special presentations of the 2023 “Roots of Rhythm” world music showcase on April 21-22, 2023. This show is an exciting blend of musical performances and educational lessons on music from the African diaspora.

“Roots of Rhythm” is a one-of-a-kind experience that elevates cultural awareness about music from around the globe through energetic performances and engaging audience participation activities. It is an interdisciplinary voyage that encompasses world history and geography through the lens of music, coinciding with the National Standards for Arts Education.

You can learn more about “Roots of Rhythm,” including images and promo videos, at the UTM Percussion Website.

Presentations on both April 21 and 22 are free with your membership or park admission. Not a member? Join today!
