Thanks to Kinder Morgan Foundation for funding TCMU’s 2017 “Music at the Museum” programs! In 2017, interactive performances by DRUM Percussion Studio, Greenville Jazz Collective, and Furman University Music Students allowed hundreds of guests to have access to talented and meaningful music programs.
Thanks in-part to Robert and Ruth Lee Foundation, our 2018 “Music in the Museum” programs include:
Terrific Tuesdays for Five and Under: Music and Movement from 11:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
January 27th: Our first Sensory Friendly Saturday included an inclusive percussion event with DRUM Percussion Studio. Children with and without sensory needs participated in group music from 10 am – 12 pm.
February 24th: Our annual Maker Fest will include vendors dedicated to making music. Sara Johnson, volunteer with TCMU, is also a harpist. She will be showing children the technical components of the harp while playing music. DRUM Percussion Studio will be allowing children to make percussive instruments. Check back for more information on expected music makers.
March – Music in Schools: Our Spark!Lab Invention Space is focusing on music during Music in Schools Month! While children will have an entire month to learn about the invention of musical instruments and will have opportunities to create their own, we will also have appearances by local musicians in the space. Meet percussionist, Jason Currin, on March 10th and make your own percussion instruments.
