The World of Percussion

The oldest musical instrument is the rock; even Paleolithic Man couldn’t resist the urge to tap them together and start getting a groove on!  Meet three of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra’s team of crack percussionists, those versatile musicians in the back of the orchestra handling everything from a bass drum and cymbals to a thundersheet and crotales.  Guaranteed to astound you, and probably make things a bit noisier around the house for a while.
