The Chicago Percussion Quintet has introduced thousands of students from K-12 over

the past two decades to the sounds of percussion instruments from five continents.

Five percussionists play music from Africa, Brazil, Caribbean Islands, China, Cuba, Germany, Spain and the United States.

The melodies in the show are played on marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, orchestra bells,

and steel drum. Rhythms from around the world are played on bongos, congas, timbales,

drum set, agogo bells, castanets, claves, gongs, shaker, shekere and many others.

The group demonstrates percussion instruments individually before they are heard in arrangements specifically created for this musical tour around the world. Students learn

about music, history and geography in this fast paced musical program.

Volunteers get an opportunity to create an African piece along side these professional

percussionists. Fun for one and all in this show.
