Percussionist Tom Teasley to perform at RWC
On Sunday, February 8, internationally-acclaimed percussionist Tom Teasley will present his award-winning repertoire of world rhythms at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury (RWC). The performance begins at 5 p.m. in the RWC Chesapeake Center, 132 Lancaster Drive, Irvington, and is open to the public.
At RWC on February 8, Teasley will demonstrate percussion traditions from Africa, India and the Middle East, offering an American perspective on these musical art forms. “By highlighting the commonalities between drums, rhythms and other musical elements I can show how cultures have more in common than we might think,” he said.
Teasley’s performance at RWC is underwritten by the RWC Bazaar Performance Series. There is no charge for attendance but reservations are required, as space is limited. Please call 438-4800 by Friday, February 6.
