SHARE THE DRUM
Asheville Percussion Festival 2018 was held Monday June 25-Sunday July 1, in beautiful Asheville, NC.
Engage in a world of rhythm. Come enjoy a creative environment where percussionists, dancers, and music lovers of all traditions, gather to explore, create and innovate. The festival will be hosted by Asheville's ambassador to rhythm, River Guerguerian.
This year's theme, Celebrating Women in Rhythm, honored powerful female artists whom we will bring to Asheville from around the globe. Our Residency Artists will collaborate and create original compositions during the week. They will also teach a week-long intensive program, give workshops/demonstrations on Saturday for the public, perform a Masters Concert on Friday evening, an informal evening of Solo Performances and Jams on Saturday evening, and facilitate a sound meditation on Sunday.
This project is funded in part by the GRASSROOTS ARTS PROGRAM of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, through the Asheville Area Arts Council.
