Season Guest Concert Features Grammy Winner Glenn Velez Dec. 9
The Season Guest Concerts continue Sunday, Dec. 9, with Glen Velez Handance, featuring special guests Loire Cotler and Shane Shanahan, and the contemporary acoustic ensemble Dunham Shoe Factory.

Four-time Grammy winner Glen Velez is considered the founding father of the modern frame drum movement and regarded as a legendary figure among musicians and audiences world-wide.

The 4 p.m. concert will be held at the BMC, 72 Blanche Moyse Way. Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for students.

Velez brought a new genre of drumming to the contemporary music scene by creating his own performance style inspired by years of percussion and frame drumming studies from various cultures. His virtuosic combinations of hand movements, finger techniques, along with his original compositional style, which incorporates stepping, drum language and Central Asian Overtone singing (split-tone singing), has undoubtedly opened new possibilities for musicians around the globe, resulting in a shift in modern percussion.
