RNCM Day Of Percussion 2019

Welcome to the 2019 RNCM Day of Percussion, our annual day of inspirational clinics and performances from leading educators and artists. We’re thrilled to welcome back virtuoso artist Evelyn Glennie who will be performing with Trio HLK in the evening concert and also presenting a fascinating clinic with the group during the day. Pete Lockett also makes a welcome return with a session designed to expand your rhythmic vocabulary and Peter Vulperhorst takes us on a journey through the history of snare drumming styles from ancient to modern.

We will also be joined by the renowned drummer Neal Wilkinson for a session focussing on the development of sound, touch and feel on the kit and RLPO Principal Percussionist Graham Johns offers playing tips, advice and a real insight into the triangle and tambourine.

There are opportunities for lessons with staff from the RNCM Percussion Department and a workshop with Inspire-works alongside an extensive trade exhibition for all to enjoy throughout the day.

For younger visitors and parents, we’re offering a morning ticket for both the opening concert of the day, the brilliant and inspiring China Youth Percussion Group, and a participatory workshop with Andrea Vogler. I look forward to seeing you there.
