The Percussive Arts Society has been headquartered in Indianapolis since 2007 and works very closely with Drum Corp International, Music For All (which hosts the Bands of America Grand Nationals) and Winter Guard International, three organizations also dedicated to helping students love and appreciate music.
This Saturday (November 21) is the grand opening of the Percussive Arts Society’s Rhythm! Discovery Center located in the basement of the Northwest corner of Maryland and Washington streets in downtown Indianapolis, just below the Indianapolis Arts Garden and Panera Bread.
As part of the grand opening festivities, admission is FREE this Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
In addition to learning about the rich history of percussive music, you’ll also get the opportunity to play many instruments. You can even play in a sound-proof demo recording studio! As a former high school drummer, I know I’ll be checking out this exhibit soon.
Take a look at the video below. Our good friend Lou Harry from the Indianaopolis Business Journal takes a tour of the Rhythm! Discover Center and tells a joke.
