Although there are no concerts on the schedule today, there is a free teaching workshop to check out, particularly recommended for those in grades 3-7. It’s titled “Get Your Groove On,” and it’s about the rhythms that tie together music, poetry, and dance.
Kimberly Zaleski (flute, vocals), Trevor Kazarian (cello, vocals, beatbox), and Dylan Moffitt (percussion, mixed media) of the Cleveland-based group 1N2ATIV3 will be joined by hip-hop dancer and choreographer Christian Townsend, who freestyles to the beats and improvisations of the ensemble. Get a taste of their collaboration here.
The workshop is presented by CityMusic Cleveland, and is held on Tuesday evenings in September from 6-7 pm at the Woodland Rec Center.
