Percussionist, composer, and educator Justin Jay Hines has performed with the New York Philharmonic, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Moab Music Festival, Alarm Will Sound, and the Chamber Music Society of Detroit. He has served as a Lead NY Philharmonic Teaching Artist in New York City and Japan since 1997, and in November will make his fourth appearance hosting the New York Philharmonic’s Young People’s Concert Dance Like a Firebird.

Beginning at 3pm, Justin will perform his signature percussion workshop Rhythm ‘Round the World at The Farmers’ Museum. This interactive workshop showcases the rich global history of percussion, featuring stories, solos, and demonstrations on a wide variety of instruments. Cross-curriculum connections relate to Geography, History, and the Physics of sound, while primary musical concepts focus on rhythm, patterns, and timbre. In a new version created specifically for the Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival, Rhythm ‘Round the World audience members will help create the percussion soundtrack for Native American Storytelling. The concert is also preceded by an instrument making table. Bring your metal, plastic, and cardboard recyclable items! Appropriate for ages 7 and up.

This event is the second of two unique, family-friendly workshops and performances. The first event takes place at Origins Cafe at 10:30am on Friday, August 16th. Both events are free and registration is required.
